Nichia Corporation filed a patent infringement lawsuit with the Tokyo District Court against Corlant Inc. (“Corlant”), a distributor of automotive aftermarket parts under the brand of Valenti, seeking an injunction and compensation for damages.

The accused product, against which Nichia seeks an injunction and compensation for damages in this lawsuit, is an automotive LED position lamp distributed by Corlant (product name: T10S-W0909-1) equipped with LEDs, which Nichia believes infringes its patents JP5800452 and JP6320582 in relation to PSS technology*.

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