Nichia files Patent Infringement Lawsuit against EBV in Germany regarding white LED product of Everlight

On February 22, 2017, Nichia Corporation (“Nichia“) filed a patent infringement lawsuit in Germany at the District Court Düsseldorf against the Germany-based distributor EBV Elektronik GmbH & Co. KG and EBV Management GmbH (both “EBV“).

In the lawsuit, Nichia is seeking permanent injunction, rendering accounts, damages, recall and destruction, alleging that the white LED product “XI3535-KT577J1-03201-000P” manufactured by Taiwanese LED manufacturer Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd. and distributed by EBV in Germany 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.
