    re Seeking Alpha Article ( my own addendum)

    Google "UniPixel’s Flexible Conductive Films Find Opportunities in the Marketplace"

    For those who don't know, to make a long story short, Carclo/CIt worked with Uni-Pixel on a TMOS (Time Multiplexed Optical Shutte) Project starting back in 2005 which centered on flat panel displays. What Dr. Robert Petcavich (CTO of Uni-Pixel) fails to mention in the article is the knowledge about inks and printing for Uni-Boss was "obtained" from Carclo/CIT which violated the NDA (non-disclosure) between the two parties. See his comments below and you'll gain a slightly better understanding as to why Carclo is suing them. Most damning to Uni-Pixel is the statement “During the TMOS development, we had to learn how to inkjet very fine conductive lines of 5 microns or less." Patcavich basically admits what Carclo/CIT is suing them about.

    “After eight years of development, we decided to license that technology to Rambus Inc., but kept all the film micro embossing and printing technology for our internal products,” said Dr. Robert Petcavich, UniPixel, Inc.’s chief technology officer, senior vice president and general manager. “During the TMOS development, we had to learn how to inkjet very fine conductive lines of 5 microns or less.

    “That know-how was sufficient for small scale batch processing, but not large scale roll-to-roll printing,” Dr. Petcavich added. “But the knowledge we gained from that exercise taught us a lot about inks and printing, which we translated into a roll-to-roll process.”
