It has been claimed that the filed prosecution is the subsequent claim including the cell phone products following the suit against Conrad for the encroachment of backlight unit LEDs documented in July this year. The Seoul complaint report stated that flashlight LEDs of the mobile phones which were sold by Conrad were violating the company’s ‘Roughened Light Extraction Surface’ technology patent.

As per trusted sources, the patented technology has been subjected to ban from the German court from over 10 LED designers and developers. Despite this, it now has been registered in over 12 major countries-the US, Europe, Asian, and others along with finding extensive use in automobile headlamps, UV, cell phone flashlights, and more.

Additionally, Seoul would also undertake necessary actions against the companies which decoy the employees with a motive to gain an unlawful permit to the company’s trade secrets.
