Everlight Defeats Nichia in LED Patent Battle

Last Friday, Everlight announced that it had defeated Nichia in an administrative suit that it believes will give it an edge in other patent proceedings against the Japanese company.

According to Everlight, Taiwan's Supreme Administrative Court upheld a High Administrative Court verdict which ruled that a patent asserted by Nichia related to LED component production technology was invalid.

The court agreed with Everlight’s contention that Nichia was not the inventor of the patent and that Everlight had the right to apply the technology covered by the patent to its production process.

In addition, the Intellectual Property Office of the Ministry of Economic Affairs is also expected to revoke the particular patent it has granted to Nichia.
