German Court Grants Preliminary Injunction Against Mouser Based on Nichia’s YAG Patent

On September 29, 2016, Nichia Corporation (“Nichia”) filed a request for a preliminary injunction in Germany at the Düsseldorf District Court against Mouser Electronics Inc. (“Mouser”), alleging that the white LED product “334-15/X1C5-1QSA” manufactured by Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd. (“Everlight”) and distributed by Mouser in Germany infringes Nichia’s YAG patent EP 936 682 (DE 697 02 929).

The Düsseldorf District Court admitted Nichia’s arguments that the above mentioned product of Everlight infringes claim 1 of Nichia’s YAG patent and granted the preliminary injunction on the same day. Due to the particular urgency, the preliminary injunction was granted ex parte, i.e. without prior hearing of Mouser. On October 7, 2016, the preliminary injunction was served to Mouser. This is a preliminary measure which can still be remedied by Mouser.

Nichia seeks to protect its patents and other intellectual property rights and takes actions against alleged infringers in any country where appropriate and necessary.
