Hitachi, Ltd. announced that it has filed suit against 3 major Taiwanese monitor manufacturers "Amtran Technology Co.,Ltd., Proview Electronics Co.,Ltd., and Tatung Co." together with their related companies "Proview Electronics International Holdings Ltd., Proview Technology, Inc., and Tatung Co. of America, Inc.," on June 6, 2005 in U.S. District Court of Northern California.

For more than a year Hitachi has been discussing the possible patent license agreement with these manufacturers without success. In view of the fairness with those companies who already obtained license from Hitachi, Hitachi has no choice but to initiate litigation.

According to the complaint, these manufacturers produce and market PC monitor without having entered into license agreement with Hitachi.

The suit seeks, among other things, monetary damages and an injunction prohibiting these manufacturers from using Hitachi's patents in their products and from offering, marketing, or importing them.
