Universal Display scores favorable Japanese patent ruling

  • The Japanese IP High Court has reversed the Japanese Patent Office's invalidation of the broad claims in a Universal Display (OLED) patent. The JPO will now take a second look at the matter. (PR)
  • Universal asserts the patent in question is one of 60+ covering "four early fundamental phosphorescent OLED inventions." The high court's ruling comes two weeks after Universal announced the EPO had affirmed  "the basic inventions and broad patent coverage" of a patent being challenged by Sumitomo, Merck, and BASF, albeit while narrowing the scope of the original claims.

  • this is great. will be exciting to see if OLED breaks the 12.5m rev this quarter, as there is no Samsung revenue. I think they will break it, strongly. (last 2q w out samsung 1q12 3q12 were both 12.5).


    AAPL and OLED anyone?
