German LED marketing and distribution company acknowledges infringement of NICHIA intellectual property rights and ceased marketing the products
Recently, Nichia Corporation demanded that a company in Germany halt marketing of its LED-application products, which Nichia determined that the white LEDs, apparently made in Taiwan , used in the products are covered by Nichia's patented technology and trade marks.
This company agreed to stop marketing the infringing products and to use white LEDs made by Nichia, instead of the infringing white LEDs. The case didn't amount to a legal dispute and an early settlement was reached.
NICHIA CORPORATION has been giving serious consideration to the protection of its intellectual property, and it will vigorously enforce its intellectual property rights against infringing activities in any countries.
