...0, ImageMovers, ImageMovers Digital, Sony Pictures Animation and Sony Pictures Imageworks.  The complaint says the studios "secretly agreed to work together to deprive thousands of their workers of better wages and opportunities to advance their careers at other companies."
...In his complaint, Nitsch quotes Lucas as saying that "the rule we always had [was] we cannot get into a bidding war with other companies because we don't have the margins for that sort of thing."
“Jobs purchased Lucasfilm's computer graphics division in 1986 and created a separate new company called ‘Pixar, "” the court filing said. “With Jobs as its CEO Pixar agreed with Lucasfilm that (a) they would not cold call each other's employees; (b) they would notify the other company when making an offer to an employee of the other company, if that employee applied for a job notwithstanding the agreement not to cold call; and (c) the company making such an offer would not increase its offer if the company currently employing the employee made a counteroffer.”"
"Industry leaders are calling for more compelling, immersive content to meet the growing demand," he says. "This is where 8i comes in, because [the] technology will enable content creators worldwide to make incredible experiences for VR."
