LG tries to crackdown on fake phones overseas

An interesting little article on LG's efforts to protect their phone designs overseas, mainly China, Dubai, and Europe.

LG Electronics discovered last month that a phone called "Diamond," an imitation of its "Shine" phone, was being sold in China and Europe via the Internet, and it moved to put a stop to sales of the product. It is currently preparing a suit against the maker of the phone.

According to the LG Group, the number of cases in which the LG brand and design was misused increased in China from five cases in 2005 to 39 cases last year; in Dubai, there was only one case in 2005, but six cases last year.
