Bridgelux, a leading developer and manufacturer of light emitting diode (LED) lighting technologies, yesterday filed a counter claim against EVERLIGHT in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California seeking past and current damages, and an injunction preventing further sale of certain products in the United States.  Bridgelux asserts that many EVERLIGHT products including EVERLIGHT’s 2835 and chip-on-board (COB) product lines infringe on Bridgelux United States Patent numbers 6,869,812, 8,567,988, 8,256,929 and 8,092,051.

Bridgelux has invested heavily in research and product development of fundamental LED technologies, which are the intellectual property of Bridgelux and protected through their patent portfolio.  Among these technologies are light extraction processes, thermal management, and packaging used throughout the solid state lighting industry across die, surface mount, array and modular systems.  “Bridgelux is not an imitator.  We develop our own technology, and are therefore confident in the strength of our claims, the quality of our intellectual property, and the ability of the U.S. judicial system to reach the appropriate outcome,” said Tim Lester, Chief Executive Officer at Bridgelux. 

For over a decade, Bridgelux has built high quality, high performing and reliable solid state LED lighting solutions ideal for a range of indoor and outdoor lighting applications.  Products are developed with careful consideration of global customer needs and industry trends, and follow many industry standards such as the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) binning guidelines.  With over 1,000 patents owned or licensed, Bridgelux prides itself on respecting the intellectual property process and the intellectual property of others, and will continue to staunchly defend itself.

Bridgelux has engaged Arent Fox LLP, a leading intellectual property firm, to represent them in this matter.
