NanoLumens today announced that it has filed patent infringement lawsuits against LED display manufacturers PixelFLEX, of Nashville, Tenn.; InFiLED USA, of Marietta, Ga.; DetaiLED Solutions, of Marietta, Ga.; and Gable Company, of Baltimore, Md. for unspecified damages stemming from the companies’ infringement of four U.S. patents issued to NanoLumens.
According to NanoLumens CEO Rick Cope, the decision to file suit in federal court was not undertaken lightly and follows repeated good faith efforts and multiple communications by NanoLumens to resolve its concerns with the four companies to create meaningful business relationships. “NanoLumens has invested millions of dollars and man hours in the development of pioneering innovations that have been justly recognized by the United States Patent Office,” Cope said today. “Patent protected innovation is what makes the United States the leading innovator that it is. Failure to protect against patent infringement opens the door to the death of innovation and that is not something that this company will ever stand for.”
The lawsuits allege that PixelFLEX, InFiLED USA, DetaiLED and Gable Company have, in one form or another, infringed upon US Patents 8,963,895 (Ubiquitously Mountable Image Display System), 9,159,707 (Flexible Display), and 9,640,516 (Flexible Display Apparatus and Methods), all of which are owned by NanoLumens. NanoLumens currently holds over a dozen United States Patents covering virtually every aspect of its flexible LED display design and engineering, with more patents pending.
At NanoLumens the vision of a universal modular display that can be built in any size, shape, curvature, or pixel density has been the singular focus of the company for many years. That focus has led to numerous innovations, patents and patents pending covering key aspects of the technology portfolio that, collectively, deliver superb performance in the NanoLumens flexible Nixel display module. Patented features enable the NanoLumens Nixel display module to seamlessly tile and re-tile display surfaces, accept a wide continuum of changing curvatures and placements and maintain pixel-to-pixel uniformity.
