Samsung wants LG to admit to being responsible for OLED technology leak
"Our company, which claims about 97 percent of the world's organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen market, is now on the verge of losing trillions of won from the leak. Executives of LG Display, which lacks OLED technology and related human resources, took the lead in this criminal act in order to overcome their shortcomings as quickly as possible"-Samsung statement
After 11 employees from LG Display were indicted for leaking information on Samsung's OLED technology, Samsung said the leak will cost them "trillions of wons," and put the blame for the leak right in the lap of LG Display's executives. On the other hand, LG Display refutes Samsung's claim and confirms that it is suing its fellow South Korean based tech titan for libel and hopes that the proceedings will show LG's innocence in the matter.
 
Ironically, LG says that it had no reason to steal Samsung's OLED technology considering that both firms' OLED displays work differently. Still, Samsung calls this a "grave crime" and wants LG to take responsibility for the leak by admitting their actions. OLED panels, which are thinner and offer more vivid pictures than regular LCD display panels, are in heavy demand. 6 other suspects in the case are current or former Samsung Mobile employees.

watch out, TV's are centered rectangles and many of them have rows of icons now. Some even have a large central button (power lol) Its only a matter of time before Apple sues the TV industry for design infringement.

samsung is total $hit!!!
even they are not the creators of OLED..., KODAK developed OLED.
SONY advanced the OLED tech and made the world's 1st OLED TV and made 1st bendable OLED screen. so... should sony sue samsung for stealing their tech in the way samsung accused lg ???
And also LG is not the culprit here, they developed their technology based on PMOLED not AMOLED...

So by your logic, who ever creates something first, noone else can develop it and advance it? And did you even read the article mate?

Kodak OLED division produced 1st OLED for consumers. they hold large number of patents. they have introduced many panels to market. LG purchased OLED division od Kodak. Now Samsung is paying royalty to LG. and samsung is blaming LG for copying. I cant understand what Samsung is claiming. Any way this is not as confusing as square with round corner

I don't get you. Samsung is blamming LG for ... leaking not for copying, and LG said

"LG says that it had no reason to steal Samsung's OLED technology considering that both firms' OLED displays work differently."

Agreed. I think after spending too much time in court, Samsung is affected by law suite virus.

Samsung is stating this in a retaliation because yesterday LG was choosen over samsung by the korean govenment to make 60'' flexible oled displays.

Samsung is taking apple's route they want to kill the competition so they can remain #1 oled manufacturer.

LG is the supplier of screens for Apple.
If Samsung can prove that LG leaked some info regarding their screens then they can get apple next.
At least that's every open-minded person's hope,,, except you.

Agree, but still Lg manufactures their screens, and Lg's leaked information still could hurt Samsung.
btw, i've been kind of rude to you but you replied me respectfully, I apologize.
Have a good day.

Lets make informed statements please

Samsung applications

By 2004 Samsung, South Korea's largest conglomerate, was the world's largest OLED manufacturer, producing 40% of the OLED displays made in the world,[84] and as of 2010 has a 98% share of the global AMOLED market.[85] The company is leading the world of OLED industry, generating $100.2 million out of the total $475 million revenues in the global OLED market in 2006.[86] As of 2006, it held more than 600 American patents and more than 2800 international patents, making it the largest owner of AMOLED technology patents.

LG applications

As of 2010, LG Electronics produced one model of OLED television, the 15 inch 15EL9500[113] and has announced a 31" OLED 3D television for March 2011.[114] On December 26, 2011, LG officially announced the "world's largest 55" OLED panel" then featured it at CES 2012.
