On June 12, 2021, a federal jury in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas delivered a complete victory for Absen in a patent infringement lawsuit. In the case, Ultravision alleged that Absen LED display products exported to the United States infringed certain patents. The unanimous jury verdict found that none of the nine Absen accused products lines infringed any of the asserted patent claims. The jury also determined that all asserted patent claims were invalid. The ruling followed after four days of testimony and about only three hours of jury deliberations.
As a leading LED display company that is deeply involved in the international market, Absen has, since its establishment 20 years ago, consistently adhered to its core principles of technological innovation and respect for intellectual property rights. After being sued in 2018, Absen actively responded. It set up a special team of internal experts as well as external American lawyers led by Goodwin Procter LLP. Absen also partnered with other Chinese LED display companies (Glux, Leyard, Liantronics, and Unilumin). Particularly, the partnership included jointly retaining Goodwin Procter and executing a joint response strategy. With the overall planning and efforts from all parties, a highly successful result was received in the US court and Absen thanks all involved.
