Cree files patent lawsuit against Emson's TacLight

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has filed a complaint with the US District Court for the District of Massachusetts alleging infringement of its patented LED technology in the flashlights (e.g. the Bell + Howell Taclight) of E. Mishan & Sons Inc (Emson).

As part of the complaint, Cree is seeking an award of enhanced damages, attorneys' fees and an injunction to prevent Emson from offering for sale and selling any products using "knock-off" LEDs.

"Cree will not tolerate and will aggressively defend against such blatant disregard of its intellectual property rights," says Dave Emerson, senior VP & general manager for Cree LEDs. "We have an obligation to our customers to ensure that the market offers products that include the high-quality LED components that customers have come to expect," he adds. "We are committed to protecting Cree's investment in research and development on behalf of our customers, shareholders and our licensing partners."
