In the lawsuit, Nichia is seeking permanent injunction, rendering account and damages against a white LED product (product number: SMD Low Power LED 61-238/LK2C-B56706F4GB2/ET) manufactured by Everlight, which Nichia believes infringes Nichia's YAG patent EP 936 682 (DE 697 02 929).

On April 23, 2012, Nichia also filed another patent infringement lawsuit in Germany at the District Court Düsseldorf against the German distributor Future Electronics Deutschland GmbH selling the above mentioned Everlight’s white LED product, which Nichia believes infringes Nichia’s YAG patent EP 936 682 (DE 697 02 929), seeking permanent injunction, rendering account, damages, recall and destruction.

Nichia seeks to protect its patents and other intellectual property rights and takes actions against alleged infringers in any country where appropriate and necessary.
