US ITC Affirmed No Violation of Section 337 by AUO (2012.06.17)

AU Optronics Corp. (“AUO”) (TAIEX: 2409; NYSE: AUO) is pleased to announce that the United States International Trade Commission (“ITC”) has affirmed on June 15, 2012 (US time) the Administrative Law Judge’s initial determination of January 12, 2012 of no violation of Section 337 in the case brought against AUO and several other respondents by Thomson Licensing, Inc (“Thomson”).  The case began in 2010 when Thomson filed an ITC action against AUO and others, seeking a ban against importation of products Thomson believes violates its patents.  After a trial lasting several weeks, Judge Rogers, the Administrative Judge who oversaw the trial, ruled in AUO's favor on all counts.  The ITC has now affirmed that AUO’s panels do not infringe any valid claim of patents asserted by Thomson.
