The Korean police is investigating a case of stolen OLED technology. According to Yonhap News, OLED designs and production details have been stolen from LG.Display and Samsung and sold to Chinese and Taiwanese display manufacturers.<br /><br /><h3>OLED technology stolen</h3>Back in April it was reported that <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1333698097><b>Samsung’s OLED technology had been stolen</b></a> and that 11 people had been arrested. A new case is currently being investigated, and this time China is suspected of buying the technology.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungoledtv55-6l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungoledtv55-6.jpg" alt="Stolen OLED technology" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Chinese companies are suspected of buying secret OLED technology information stolen from LG and Samsung</i></p><br />According to the report an Israeli company called Orbotech is suspected of stealing and selling OLED technology designs from LG.Display and Samsung. The Korean police suspects Chinese BOE – along with others - of buying the stolen data. BOE is currently building a 5.5-generation OLED factory in Inner Mongolia.<br /><br />The six Orbotech employees are said to have photographed circuit diagrams of LG and Samsung’s 55-inch OLED-TV panels when doing a routine check on production equipment. Photographs were stored on memory cards that were smuggled out hidden in shoes, belts and wallets.<br /><br />OLED technology is obviously extremely important to South Korea and the government as the display industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. The global AMOLED market is estimated to be worth almost 80 billion USD.<br /><br />- <i>Source: <a href=http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/national/2012/06/27/5/0302000000AEN20120627008500315F.HTML target=_blank></a> via <a href=http://www.oled-info.com/israeli-orbotech-suspected-leaking-korean-oled-tv-tech-china-and-taiwan target=_blank>OLED-Info.com</a></I>
