TSMC v. SMIC Trial Continues - See CVN Video Links of Opening, Witness Examination and Verdict

By Todd

We've been following progress in the massive TSMC v. SMIC trade secrets trial going on in California, see here: http://wombletradesecrets.blogspot.com/2009/11/tsmc-wins-major-trade-secrets-verdict.html.
You'll recall that the jury has already found that SMIC had improperly "acquired, used or disclosed" the TMSC trade secrets and violated the 2005 agreement between the companies and that an attorney for TSMC said its expert witness on damages put the requested amount in the range of "ten figures," or $1 billion. This is a whopper of a case, folks - and it's still going on.
