Feb 23 (Reuters) - Japanese electronics maker Sharp Corp would drop legal action blocking China’s Hisense Group from selling television in North America, Nikkei reported on Friday.
As of Thursday, Sharp had withdrawn a Federal lawsuit and an action filed with a U.S. trade body, the Nikkei Asian Review said. Sharp, which had reduced its overseas TV business, had said it would re-enter the U.S. market with a high-end television brand.
In September, the U.S. International Trade Commission had agreed to probe certain Wi-Fi enabled devices and their parts after Sharp accused China’s Hisense Group Co Ltd of infringing its patents.
