Nichia granted preliminary injunctions in Germany against Everlight white LED products

On 10 October and 28 October, Japan-based LED maker Nichia Corp filed a request for three preliminary injunctions in Germany at the Düsseldorf District Court alleging that the white LED products '334-15/X1C5-1QSA', '334-15/T2C2-1TVB' and 'XI3535-KT577J1-03201-000P' manufactured by Taiwan's Everlight Electronics Co Ltd and distributed in Germany infringe Nichia's YAG patent EP 936 682 (DE 697 02 929).

The Düsseldorf District Court has since (on 24 October and 7 November, respectively) admitted Nichia's arguments that the Everlight products infringe claim 1 of Nichia's YAG patent and granted the preliminary injunctions (File Nos. 4a O 104/16, 4a O 112/16 and 4a O 113/16). Due to the particular urgency, the preliminary injunctions were granted ex parte (without the prior hearing of Everlight).

On 10 November, the preliminary injunctions were served on Everlight. Nichia notes that these are preliminary measures that can still be remedied by Everlight.
