LG Goes After Beko For Appliance IP Infringement
LG Goes After Beko For Appliance IP Infringement


LG Electronics, headquartered in South Korea, has filed another lawsuit against Beko for intellectual property infringement, this time for its unauthorised use of LG’s patented TrueSteam technology.

While the lawsuit was filed at the Mannheim District Court in German, Beko is a subsidiary of Turkey’s largest consumer electronics company Arçelik.

The LG TrueStream technology protects certain garments from damage and is featured across a number of the manufacturer’s washing machines, dryers, dishwashers and LG’s Styler. The Styler is a steam clothing care system that refreshes and deodorises clothing that is stored within it.

This follows another lawsuit LG lodged against Arçelik over its alleged unlicensed implementation of LG’s freezer door ice-making technology in September 2019.

“Protecting our intellectual property is a top priority because innovation should never be taken for granted, and this is what separates LG from the competition,” Jeon Saeng-gyu, the Executive Vice President of LG Electronics’ Intellectual Property Centre said. “We provide value to customers through our devotion and commitment to research and development.”
