    What is this UK court case all about?

    • Wahhhh, unfair head start!

      Carclo plc's wholly owned UK subsidiary, Conductive Inkjet Technology Limited ("CIT"), has issued proceedings in the English High Court against Uni-Pixel Displays, Inc. ("Uni-Pixel") (NASDAQ: UNXL), a developer of performance engineered films with its headquarters and operations in Texas, USA.

      In proceedings issued and notified to Uni-Pixel in June 2012 and served in December 2012, CIT's claims are for breach of contract, breach of confidence, and patent entitlement. The basis of the claim is CIT's belief that Uni-Pixel has made unauthorised use of confidential CIT know-how, relating to the formulation and use of catalytic inks and metallisation technology in touch screen applications, in the development of its own metal mesh process and products (which it calls "UniBoss™") and related patents it has filed (or been issued) on these processes. CIT know-how in that field was disclosed to Uni-Pixel with CIT's consent as part of a project with a development partner, but CIT only permitted Uni-Pixel to use that know-how in relation to a different field of use, unrelated to touch screen sensors. CIT believes that Uni-Pixel has breached the restrictions imposed in respect of its use of that know-how.

      CIT is seeking injunctive relief against Uni-Pixel to deprive it of the unfair head-start in its development efforts which CIT believes it to have gained from unauthorised use of CIT know-how, plus damages.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • It seems Carclo and UNXL worked together in some project once where knowledge about the manufacturing process call "Fine Line Technology" was shared for the project.
      Carclo claims Uni-Pixel has breached the restrictions imposed in respect of its use of that know-how and UNXL has used that knowledge illegally to create UniBoss.

      "The basis of the claim is CIT's belief that Uni-Pixel has made unauthorised use of confidential CIT know-how, relating to the formulation and use of catalytic inks and metallisation technology in touch screen applications, in the development of its own metal mesh process and products (which it calls UniBoss) and related patents it has filed (or been issued) on these processes."

    • Looks like Carclo is upset about losing business to UniPixel

        Hmmm...

        Does this look like a situation where Carclo was negotiating with Uni-Pixel in the Spring and then as a part of those negotiations they shot something at Uni-Pixel in June as leverage in those negotiations. Uni-Pixel told them to pound sand for the last 6 months and now Carclo is following thru with whatever they threw at them in June with this court proceeding??
