Epistar settles US patent infringement lawsuit against Adamax

Epistar Corp of Hsinchu Science-based Industrial Park, Taiwan (the world's largest manufacturer of LED epiwafers and chips) has agreed to settle its patent litigation against Adamax Inc (trading as Newhouse Lighting) filed on 30 August in the US District Court for the Northern District of California alleging infringement of Epistar's light-emitting diode filament patents (US Patent Nos. 6,346,771, 7,489,068, 7,560,738, 8,240,881, 8,344,353, 8,791,467, 9,065,022).

The LED filament patents relate to, among other things, LED filament structures and light-emitting products using LED filaments. The complaint asserted that Newhouse Lighting products and technology infringed Epistar patents and sought injunctive relief to halt further sales.

Under the terms of the settlement, Epistar will release Adamax for the past sales of its LED filament products under the patents-in-suit. In addition, Adamax will pay ongoing royalties based on its sales of products for Epistar patents-in-suit.

Epistar says that the settlement protects its investment in R&D on advanced LED technologies at the core of its business.
