In its final judgment in Ultravision Technologies, LLC v. Shenzhen Only Optoelectronic Tech Co Ltd, the U.S. Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued a permanent injunction and ordered Shenzhen Only to pay both compensatory and treble damages.

The U.S. court stated: “Ultravision shall recover an award of damages for Defendant’s past infringement and any continuing or infringement post-filing until all infringement, direct and indirect (of Ultravision’s patents) is stopped, including compensatory damages, treble damages for willful infringement, interest, costs, attorney fees, and as provided by 35 U.S.C. § et seq. and 28 U.S.C. §1961.”

The permanent injunction bars Shenzhen Only, its officers and its affiliated entities from importing products infringing on Ultravision patents. The court also issued a permanent injunction barring customers from using any products imported from Shenzhen Only that infringe on Ultravision’s patents.

The patents involved in the lawsuit are No. 9,349,306 (modular display panel) and No. 9,069,519 (power and control system for modular multi-panel display system). As the world’s foremost innovator of LED displays and LED lighting, Ultravision holds more than 20 patents throughout the world that protect the company’s intellectual property and proprietary technology, including the Ultravision-designed and patented modular LED display panel.

“This judgment and the financial damages awarded to Ultravision serve notice that Ultravision will hold accountable anyone who violates our patents or illegally uses or profits from our proprietary technology,” said William Hall, CEO and co-founder of Ultravision International. “Ultravision will not tolerate the pirating of our intellectual property or patented Modular LED Display Panels. As this successful lawsuit against Shenzhen Only illustrates, Ultravision will aggressively pursue those who infringe on our patents. Unfortunately, customers using pirated modular LED display panels will suffer, too, because the court ruling prohibits the use of counterfeited display panels; in other words, companies using those display panels must stop doing so, regardless of the impact on their business.”
