Nichia Files a Patent Infringement Lawsuit against Everlight in the United States
On September 11, 2013, Nichia Corporation (“Nichia”) filed a patent infringement lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. In its complaint, Nichia asks the Court to enjoin Taiwanese LED manufacturer Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd. and its U.S. subsidiary Everlight Americas, Inc. (collectively “Everlight”) from infringing Nichia’s U.S. Patent No. 7,432,589, and to award Nichia damages with regard to infringing LED products sold by Everlight.
Nichia seeks to protect its patents and other intellectual property rights and takes action against infringers in any country where appropriate and necessary.
