Hot Picks of the Week May 9-13

Highlights this week:

Cree has been very active in courts lately, settling a two year-long patent dispute with Knightbright, while filing a patent infringement counterclaim against Feit Electric. According to LEDinside analysts, the company is focusing its attention on collecting revenue from licensing patent royalties.

LEDinside analysts have tracked down interesting developments in the high end commercial lighting market, which is inconspicuously gaining market traction. We also release our first OLED research report that takes a look at how this emerging technology might change the display market sector.

We are also seeing more LED streetlight installations in Middle East this year. Oman, a Middle East country neighboring Saudi Arabia, has rolled out a major streetlight upgrade project in Sohar Port and Freezone.

The last news to make our weekly news summary this week is the government in Goa, India’s decision to ban fishing LED lights as a move to conserve the region’s fishing reservoirs, and traditional fishing methods.
