As of Jan.26th, 2016, Harvatek Corp. (“Harvatek”) announced to entrust Devlin Law Firm LLC representing it to accuse Cree, Inc. (“Cree”) of patent infringement in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. The patent-in-suit is US 6,841,934.
Harvatek was accused of infringing Cree's patents on Sep.15th, 2014. Harvatek fought back immediately. Not only did it accuse of Cree and its affiliates infringing patent in Dec.5th in the same year, but also successfully invalidated one related Chinese patent of Cree in July, 2015.
The patent-in-suit is related to LED packaging technology. Harvatek has invested enormous resources to build a considerable number of patents in such technology. Therefore, it is capable of defending the interests of its customers and shareholders. A series of counterattacks showed that Havatek has strong patent strengths and litigation abilities to compete with international companies.
So far the litigations of the two parties are still in process. Havetek is optimistic in litigation proceedings.
