EVERLIGHT files patent infringement litigation against Bridgelux for Protection of Customers’ Rights

2017-06-11

New Taipei City, Shulin – June 11, 2017 - EVERLIGHT Electronics Co., Ltd. (EVERLIGHT) on June 10, 2017 filed a patent infringement action against Bridgelux, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. EVERLIGHT is claiming that Bridgelux infringes U.S. Patent Nos. 6,335,548 and 7,253,448 by manufacturing and selling infringing LED products, including for example the Bridgelux 2835 series.

EVERLIGHT is asking the Court to enjoin Bridgelux from selling, manufacturing, importing or exporting any infringing products, and to award EVERLIGHT damages sufficient to compensate for Bridgelux’s infringement.

The ‘548 and ‘448 patents are directed to essential and fundamental structures in LEDs, and, in addition to the U.S. market, EVERLIGHT’s patent protection on such structures extends to Europe, Korea, and Japan. The technology is broadly used in LED products of high, mid or low power. EVERLIGHT believes examples include the 2835, 5630, 3030, 3535, and 5050 models, and COB LEDs.

EVERLIGHT respects intellectual property rights, will not tolerate infringement of its intellectual property, and will protect its IP for the benefit of its customers.
