After this story was posted An LG spokesman said:
“LG Australia has initiated proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia against Dyson to restrain Dyson from making certain claims in relation to its V6 Cordless Vacuum.
“LG Australia alleges that Dyson’s advertisements claiming that the Dyson V6 cordless vacuums are the “the most powerful cordless vacuums” and that those cleaners have “twice the suction power of any cordless vacuum” are misleading on the basis that the LG CordZero cordless canister vacuum is in fact more powerful and has more suction power than the Dyson V6 cordless vacuum.

Dyson responded claiming:
“Dyson is updating our advertising message to reflect the fact that the Dyson V6 is the most powerful cordless stick vacuum. We continue to invest on behalf of retailers and consumers who back Australia’s number one selling vacuum cleaner”.
