It certainly seems the case, as an ex-Seagate employee is claiming that the company stole the technology from the MIT researchers (violating an NDA), and also destroyed the blueprints in order to hide the evidence. It may (or may not) surprise you, but this case has spanned a decade, and it will certainly be interesting to see the outcome of this legal wrangle.
