Canon loses SED TV lawsuit

A US District Court has ruled against Canon in a lawsuit over SED TV technology, Reuters reports. The suit was filed by the Texas-based Nano-Proprietary, who signed a license agreement with Canon in 1999, giving the latter the technology needed to enter the flatscreen TV market. Nano charges that this agreement was violated in 2004, when Canon began sharing the technology in an SED partnership with Toshiba. SED sets are similar to current plasma and LCD TVs, but have brighter pictures while consuming less power. Canon had hoped to demonstrate the technology at January's Consumer Electronics Show, but unspecified delays prevented this from happening.
