Nichia begins to enforce PSS-related LED patents

Japan-based LED maker Nichia Corp has filed a patent infringement lawsuit with the Tokyo District Court against Corlant Inc (a distributor of automotive aftermarket parts under the brand of Valenti), seeking an injunction and compensation for damages.

The accused product distributed by Corlant is an automotive LED position lamp T10S-W0909-1, which is equipped with LEDs that Nichia believes infringe its patents JP5800452 and JP6320582 relating to patterned sapphire substrate (PSS) technology (a core technology for LED chips). Nichia currently owns over 100 PSS- related patents in more than 15 countries.

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