QD Vision, Inc. Key Developments

Samsung Electronics Plans To Acquire QD Vision

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (KOSE:A005930) plans to buy QD Vision, Inc. Chung Chil-hee, President of President, said, "We decided to acquire QD Vision.” Samsung did not confirm the exact value of the deal. But it is estimated to be some $70 million.

Nanosys Files Lawsuit against QD Vision for Patent Infringement

Nanosys announced the filing of a lawsuit against QD Vision for infringements of patents and other claims. The suit was filed as case number 3:16-cv-1957 in the United States District Court, Northern District of California on April 14, 2016. The Nanosys lawsuit alleges QD Visions products illegally infringe upon Nanosyss patent-protected photoluminescent quantum dot materials for light production and related methods. Nanosys holds the original patents on Quantum Dot technology and holds over 293 worldwide patents, including 99 in the United States, including those exclusively licensed by research institutions such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of California. QD Vision has jeopardized that growth opportunity by creating confusion among customers about the difference between the products of the two companies, and its low-quality products have cast unwarranted doubts about the viability of Quantum Dots as an ultra-high definition technology.
