ANSAN, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (“Seoul”) (KOSDAQ 046890), a leading global innovator of LED products and technology, announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas against Ace Hardware, a global retail company, for selling filament LED bulbs and other LED products manufactured by Feit Electric. Seoul claims the infringement was willful. Ace Hardware continues to sell Feit Electric products despite multiple notices.

In its complaint, Seoul asserts infringement of 16 LED patents covering the manufacturing of LED epitaxy, chips, packages, modules, lenses, and drivers. These second-generation LED technologies include technology for high color rendering, LED driver to high-voltage operation and LED multi-junction. They also include light diffusion lens, light extractor, and LED reliability. This technology is the result more than USD 1,000,000 of R&D investment.

“While global corporations emphasize corporate responsibility such as ESG,” stated Myeong-Ki Hong (CEO of Seoul). He said, “We are concerned about young innovators and small business owners being harmed.”

Seoul has obtained permanent injunctions against the sale of filament LED products several times in Europe, and the U.S. In September 2020, the German District Court of Dusseldorf issued permanent injunctions, an order of recall and destruction against filament LED bulbs manufactured by a Phillips brand affiliate. In the U.S., the Texas Northern District Court also issued a permanent injunction against certain LED bulbs distributed by America’s largest online bulb retailer in September 2019. Seoul obtained permanent injunctions against certain retailers that sell Feit Electric products within the Eastern District and Central District of Texas.
