Samsung Display files ITC complaint against BOE, alleging trade secret infringement


Samsung Display has filed a complaint against BOE Technology Group to the United States' International Trade Commission (ITC) that BOE misappropriated Samsung's trade secrets, according to an ITC document on Thursday. The ITC document reportedly said Samsung Display filed the complaint on Oct. 31 alleging BOE violated a U.S. law covering "unfair methods of competition" including infringement of intellectual property such as trade secrets, in the field of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display modules and components. According to the report, it is the first time Samsung Display has filed a complaint to the ITC against rival BOE.
