Default Four workers sentenced in Samsung, SK Hynix corporate theft affair

There's finally resolution to a case that dates back almost three years, in which chip subcontractor Applied Materials was accused of stealing semiconductor secrets from Samsung and supplying them to its arch chip rival SK Hynix. According to Korean media outlets YTN and Yonhap, one Samsung employee along with two SK Hynix workers and one of its subcontractors received suspended prison sentences of up to a year with two years of probation. Eighteen defendants from Samsung, SK Hynix and Applied Materials were originally charged, but no high-level management employees were reported to be involved. Applied Materials and Samsung arrived at a civil settlement late in 2010, so this seems to put a wrap on the entire sordid affair.
