The court also stated that if the defendant fails to perform his duties, he must compensate Samsung Display Company for 10 million won (about 59,000 yuan) per day.
The former Samsung monitor employee left after signing a confidentiality agreement in August last year. The agreement also includes a ban on finding new jobs in the same field.
Although the researcher told Samsung that he found a new job at a Korean ship safety company, he actually entered a company based in Chengdu, which has a Chinese competitor with Samsung.JingdongThe relationship is close.
According to the court, the two Chinese companies have the same major shareholder and their office buildings are adjacent to each other. So the conclusion is that the court has reason to assume that the researchers actually work for BOE.
The court also said that the defendant’s payroll did not specify the name of the company in action, which is also very suspicious.
"We won the lawsuit because it turned out that the former employee deceived our company and worked for a competitor's subcontractor, trying to get away with it, even though he promised not to do it within two years," said Samsung Display. A source said.
Samsung Display also added that it will take all necessary measures to protect the technology.
Chinese companies have been working hard to narrow the gap with Korean display manufacturers, especially in the flexible OLED field.
It is estimated that in the first quarter, Samsung Display accounted for approximately 94% of the global flexible OLED display market.
