Seoul Semiconductor Files Patent Suit against European Distributor of MEGAMAN Lighting Products

Seoul Semiconductor continues to expand its European enforcement. The Korean company announced that that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit in Germany in the District Court of Düsseldorf against Leuchtstark Vertriebs GmbH, a European LED lighting distributor, asserting infringement of Seoul’s LED patents. Seoul is currently investigating Leuchstark’s OEM/ODM manufacturers as well as other distributors.

In its complaint, Seoul asserts that this distributor is selling a “MEGAMAN” brand lighting product that infringes Seoul’s two LED patents. “MEGAMAN” is an Asian-based LED lamp brand.

The asserted patents relate to one of Seoul’s LED light extraction patent portfolios. In December 2018, Seoul enforced a patent in the field of LED light extraction technology, and the District Court of Düsseldorf ordered an injunction against sales of the accused Everlight products as well as a recall of any such products sold after July 13, 2012.

“Respecting intellectual property is essential to establish a fair competition business culture. We will take all necessary legal actions against companies that have suspicions of infringing our patents or of unlawful access to our trade secret by luring employees,” said Nam Ki-bum, Executive Vice President of the Lighting Department at Seoul Semiconductor.
