We honestly hope the OLED technology market will not become the playground for the sort of patent war that Samsung and Apple are fighting on the tablet front.
Unfortunately, our faith is being put to a hard test, enough to make us wonder if Samsung won't, perhaps, connect LG to the potential tech theft
we mentioned yesterday (the one with hundreds of millions in possible damages).
Maybe it won't happen, but something else has: Samsung wants to force an injunction
against LG Display, who “consistently acquire our OLED technologies and other business secrets by inducing our researchers to transfer.”
The first accusations of OLED IP theft were made in July (2012)
, and now Samsung seeks 1 billion Won as compensation ($880,000 / 702,000 Euro).
