Grant of Preliminary Injunction Order against EVERLIGHT, the largest GaN LED assembly manufacturer in Taiwan

Today Nichia Corporation announced that a Taiwanese court had granted a preliminary injunction order against EVERLIGHT for its use of a Taiwanese third party's blue LED products with the part numbers ES-CEBH712:A3 and ES-CEBH712:A4, which infringe on Nichia's Taiwan patent No. 160,722.

The preliminary injunction order may prevent EVERLIGHT from using the accused products. Nichia is currently evaluating whether to enforce the preliminary injunction order, and whether to further legal actions against other assembly manufacturers that use products infringing Nichia's patent(s).

Nichia believes that these actions are necessary in order to protect Nichia's intellectual properties and its licensing partners' legal rights. Nichia expressed a willingness to enforce its intellectual property rights against any other infringement in any country in the world.
