Hot Picks of the Week Aug.8-12

Highlights this week:

GE Lighting is involved in the Olympic Games Rio that runs from Aug. 5-21, 2016, in ways more than just LED lighting installation projects. The company developed LED lights that can help monitor athletes performance.

Several Asian LED manufacturers filed patent lawsuit disputes this week, Seoul Viosys filed a suit against U.S. manufacturer for infringing its UV LED chip, package, and other patents in its bug trap.

Nichia also filed two white LED patent infringement lawsuits against TCL Multimedia, the world’s third largest TV manufacturer in U.S. The company lost its suit in Taiwan against Everlight, though. Everlight succeeded in invalidating a Nichia YAG LED patent TW 383508 , but the Japanese company is appealing the decision by Taiwan’s Intellectual Property Office (TIPO). The patent status in Taiwan is currently still valid.
