Nanoco Group (LON:NANO) has announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung. The lawsuit alleges that Samsung has wilfully infringed the patents relating to Nanoco’s unique synthesis and resin capabilities for quantum dots. Nanoco is seeking a permanent injunction from further acts of infringement and unspecified but significant monetary damages.
The statement describes how Nanoco and Samsung initially worked collaboratively developing cadmium-free quantum dots based on Nanoco’s IP. However, Samsung ended the collaboration and launched its quantum dot-based televisions without entering into a supply of licensing agreement with Nanoco.
