Future of SED TV thrown in doubt

February 26th, 2007 · 1 Comment

There are more troubles in store for . Despite Toshiba relinquishing its share of the SED Inc project to Canon, a US judge has ruled that Canon has still violated its licensing agreement with Nano-Proprietary. As a consequence, Nano-Proprietary still had a right to terminate its agreement with Canon, as any “breach is measured at the time it occurs, not at the time of trial.”
Back in 1999, Nano-Proprietary licensed Canon technology for producing displays from carbon-nanotubes. This subsequently became instrumental in the production of SED screens. However, Nano-Proprietary maintains its license did not extend to a joint venture with Toshiba, and sued Canon in 2005 to prevent the use of its technology.

    I don’t know what Canon was thinking. What a mess.
