Nichia and GVL Settle US Patent Case regarding Basic Filament LED Patent

News Source: 
Nichia and GVL have agreed to settle the case titled Nichia Corp. v. Global Value Lighting LLC, Case No. 1:19-cv-01388-RGA, pending in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware. As part of the settlement, GVL has agreed to pay Nichia a license fee in return for gaining access to the technology covered by Nichia’s U.S. Patent No. 9,752,734 (“the ’734 Patent”). Further details of the settlement term are confidential.
Nichia filed its application for the ’734 Patent in 2005, following research that led to groundbreaking innovations in filament LED technology.
Nichia’s record of innovation in many areas of LED manufacture and design, including in the filament LED field, is one of the reasons why Nichia has maintained its position as the world’s leading LED company.
With the increasing popularity of filament LED products in the United States, major manufacturers of lighting products have entered into the filament lighting market. Nichia continues to evaluate these filament LED products against its patent portfolio, including the ’734 Patent, and will enforce its patent rights against unauthorized use of Nichia’s inventions. Nichia is currently enforcing the ’734 Patent against Feit Electric Co., Ltd. in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, and is engaged in active licensing discussions with multiple major lighting companies that sell filament LED products.
Nichia seeks to protect its patents and other intellectual property rights, and takes actions against alleged infringers in any country where appropriate and necessary.
