Bridgelux Responds To Everlight Lawsuit Targeting 2835 SMD Products

Bridgelux issues a statement regarding Everlight lawsuit filed on June 10, 2017 against Bridgelux

FREMONT, Calif., June 14, 2017 - Bridgelux 2835 surface mount device (SMD) products incorporate cutting-edge technology to deliver unsurpassed performance at competitive prices.  Bridgelux's technology results from years of advanced research and development, and is protected by Bridgelux's intellectual property, which currently includes a patent portfolio of more than 300 worldwide patents that extend across the expanse of light emitting diode (LED) technologies, from chips to luminaire solutions. 

On June 10, 2017, Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd. filed a lawsuit against Bridgelux in the United States District Court (Northern District of California- San Francisco Division).  The lawsuit alleges that the Bridgelux 2835 packaged LEDs infringe U.S. Patent 6,335,548 and 7,253,448.  The scope of the lawsuit is limited only to such products in the United States and does not cover any jurisdictions outside of the United States.  

Bridgelux believes that Everlight’s infringement claims are entirely without merit and intends to vigorously defend itself against these claims.  "As history demonstrates, Bridgelux respects the intellectual property rights of others and will not be intimidated by the misuse of litigation from those seeking an unfair advantage or seeking to limit the advantage Bridgelux has earned from our technology investments," said Tim Lester, CEO of Bridgelux.

Bridgelux believes this lawsuit is the result of the success of the Bridgelux 2835 SMD products in the market and Everlight’s inability to compete with a competitive offering.   Because Bridgelux’s patent portfolio covers many core LED technologies, Bridgelux intends to employ its own patent portfolio to protect its rights.
