LG Electronics, Inc. and Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. announced that the two companies have reached a basic agreement to resolve the legal procedures by a settlement with respect to patents relating to plasma display panel (PDP) brought in Japan and Korea.

Under the agreement, the companies dismissed the applications of the import suspension and other legal actions in Korea and Japan, as to their respective PDP patents. As part of the settlement, the two companies have agreed to enter into a cross-licensing agreement regarding PC and DVD specifications as well as PDP patents.

LG Electronics and Matsushita welcome an early settlement of the pending disputes. As a result of the settlement, the companies reconfirmed continued cooperation in other business areas.

In addition, LG Electronics and Matsushita agreed to set up a Business Collaboration Committee to further explore potential collaboration areas. The companies have been maintaining a good relationship since January 2001 when they agreed to form a business collaboration team in the field of residential air conditioners.
