Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) has filed a complaint against E. Mishan & Sons, Inc. (“Emson”) with the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts for infringement of Cree’s patented LED technology in Emson’s flashlights, such as the Bell + Howell Taclight.
“Cree will not tolerate and will aggressively defend against such blatant disregard of its intellectual property rights,” said Dave Emerson, senior vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs. “We have an obligation to our customers to ensure that the market offers products that include the high-quality LED components that customers have come to expect. We are committed to protecting Cree’s investment in research and development on behalf of our customers, shareholders and our licensing partners.”
As part of the complaint, Cree is seeking an award of enhanced damages, attorneys’ fees and an injunction to prevent Emson from offering for sale and selling any products using knock-off LEDs.
