New York - Patent holders handled by patent pool administrator MPEG LA filed a lawsuit against Haier America for allegedly infringing patents it controls on certain technologies used in digital TVs.

The suit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, claims unspecified monetary damages and calls for an injunction preventing Haier from marketing and importing the allegedly infringing products in the U.S.

Haier representatives had not returned calls for comment as of this posting.

MPEG LA licenses patent pools for digital technologies, including MPEG-2, MPEG-4 Visual (Part 2), IEEE 1394, VC-1, ATSC and AVC/H.264 standards.
