HSINCHU, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Macronix International Co., Ltd. (TSE: 2337), a global leader providing non-volatile memory solutions, announced that it will continue to take vigorous actions against the patent litigations filed by Spansion, Inc. in the U.S. International Trade Commission ("ITC") and the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California in late April of 2014.  Macronix will defend its products and assist its customers in defending such claim of Spansion to demonstrate that Macronix does not infringe Spansion's patents duly granted.

Macronix has devoted significant investments in the research and development of non-volatile memory technology over the past 25 years, and has been granted more than 5,300 patents. Macronix was also ranked 18th worldwide in 2011 by The Patent Board or number one in Taiwan in the semiconductor industry in terms of overall patent strength.

There is a growing concern about companies using patent litigation to compete or to corner technology markets.  Macronix believes that misuse of patent rights should be discouraged, and Macronix shall remain a major force in the non-volatile memory market. The company respects the valid intellectual property rights of other companies and will also enforce its rights against companies that infringe Macronix intellectual property rights.
