EVERLIGHT Sued Seoul Semiconductor and Neumüller for Patent Infringement


New Taipei City, Shulin Dist. – Feb. 21, 2018 - Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd. (EVERLIGHT) on May 4, 2017 and July 3, 2017 filed patent infringement cases against Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (Seoul Semi) and the distributor, Neumüller Elektronik GmbH (Neumüller), with the Mannheim District Court in Germany.  

EVERLIGHT requests the Court to enjoin Seoul Semi and Neumüller from selling, manufacturing, importing or exporting any infringing products. EVERLIGHT also requests the Court to order Seoul Semi and Neumüller to recall and destroy any inventories of infringing products, and compensate EVERLIGHT for their infringement.

With regard to Seoul Semi’s recent press release, the development in the UK case does not impact EVERLIGHT’s enforcement proceedings against Seoul Semi and Neumüller in Germany, nor does it diminish EVERLIGHT’s belief that its asserted patents are valid.

EVERLIGHT will continue its enforcement actions to protect its intellectual property, its customers and shareholders.
