High Court of Australia Rules Nichia’s Patent Invalid

Taiwan-based LED packager Everlight announced that the High Court of Australia has rendered the final judgment on August 7, 2019, denying Nichia’s appeal request.

The Court has decided that the asserted claims of Nichia’s Australia patent 720234 are invalid. The Court has affirmed that Everlight’s products of Arrow did not infringe Nichia’s patent. Everlight affirmed the result of judgment and won the final victory by defending its customers' rights and interests.

Earlier in March, Everlight reported that the Federal Court of Australia has asserted Nichia’s claims invalid in January. Now the High Court of Australia confirmed the judgment again.

Everlight has filed invalidation trial procedures against Nichia’s YAG patents in the United States, Australia, China and Taiwan. Everlight has received winning judgements as the Supreme Court of the United States has decided that the asserted claims of Nichia’s US YAG patents US5,998,925 and US7,531,960 are invalid. Also, the Beijing Intellectual Property Court has decided that Nichia’s China YAG patent CN200610095837.4 is invalid. The Taiwan Supreme Administrative Court has decided that Nichia’s Taiwan YAG patent TW383508 is invalid.

Everlight respects intellectual property rights and will devote to the protection of customers’ and shareholders’ benefits and rights.
