Nichia files Patent Infringement Lawsuit against HTC in Germany
On June 29, 2017, Nichia Corporation (“Nichia“) filed a patent infringement lawsuit in Germany at the District Court Düsseldorf against the Taiwan-based smartphone manufacturer HTC Corporation (“HTC“), and its affiliates HTC Europe Co. Ltd. and HTC Germany GmbH as well as Digital River Ireland Ltd., a global vendor that provides ecommerce and operates HTC’s European web shop.
In the lawsuit, Nichia is seeking rendering accounts and damages, alleging that HTC’s smartphone (product name: HTC U Ultra) equipped with white LED infringes Nichia’s YAG patent EP 0 936 682 (DE 697 02 929).
Nichia seeks to protect its patents and other intellectual property rights and takes actions against alleged infringers in any country where appropriate and necessary.
