The Patent Lawsuits are still in progress. Everlight safeguards and protects the intellectual property rights and interests of its clients


  Shulin, New Taipei City– Dec 28, 2018 – In response to recent press releases by Seoul Semiconductor (SSC) and mass media focus on the patent lawsuits related to Everlight vs. SSC, Everlight hereby formally and solemnly declares and clarifies: We respect the judgments rendered by the courts.  However, the patent lawsuits are still in progress and the current judgements are not final and irrevocable. Here at Everlight, we are firmly confident that the final and irrevocable court judgments will be in favor of Everlight. Everlight reasserts that it will not rule out litigation against misrepresented press releases, to safeguard and protect fair, just, righteous and public press release values. 
  As a counterattack against SSC, Everlight has launched litigations in Germany and China for patent invalidations and the litigations are currently proceeding. Everlight firmly believes that the patent invalidations are well grounded and SSC patents will eventually be ruled invalid. 
  Everlight reaffirms its inherent and consistent stand: Everlight will safeguard and protect the interests of all its clients and shareholders. For infringements of Everlight patents, Everlight will definitely and continually resort to patent lawsuits, absolutely without any show of leniency.
