One can wear a tie without the suit.
The term IGZO is misused quite a bit. It refers to a material to be substituted in panel design rather than the panel type itself. I'm sure we'll eventually get to read about how Samsung copied that too, as they're likely to make use of the technology at some point. I say that because they hold a license for much of the technology surrounding it.
Companies like Apple are very happy to see such cross licensing as it avoids having all of ones eggs in one basket. Contrary to whatis often expressed in the forums here, I don't think Apple has some sort of vendetta going on to try to squeeze Samsung out of their supply lines. Rather I see them want dual sources for major components simply from the security standpoint.
Take the A series processors, one tornado can wipe out their source. It is a big risk to not have multiple foundries on line. Same thing goes for displays. Apple doesn't look for multiple sources to give their customers something to bitch about they do so to spread out risk.
