The alleged infringing products cover a variety of Sharp's liquid crystal display products ranging from small to large size, including Sharp's Quattron series LCD TVs which AUO believes to infringe at least US Patent No. 7'771'098, a multi-primary color display solution invented by the AUO Technology Center. AUO is seeking an unspecified amount of damages and permanent injunction against the infringing products, among other reliefs.
