Nichia Wins Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Tachibana and E&E Japan in Tokyo

On October, 14, 2016, in a lawsuit filed by Nichia Corporation (“Nichia”) against Tachibana Eletech Co., Ltd (“Tachibana”) and E&E Japan Co., Ltd. (“E&E”), which companies imported and/or sold Blue LEDs manufactured by a Taiwanese company, Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd., (“Everlight”), the Tokyo District Court found that the importation/sale of those Blue LEDs by E&E and Tachibana constituted infringement of Nichia's patent.

More specifically, the Tokyo District Court found that the sale of Blue LEDs (Product Type 1254 series and 7344 series) manufactured by Everlight has infringed Nichia's Japanese patent No. 2780618 and ordered Tachibana and E&E to pay monetary damages caused by their infringement to Nichia.

Nichia seeks to protect its patents and other intellectual property rights and takes action against alleged infringements in any country when necessary.
