Lumileds prevails at ITC over LSG’s asserted LED chip patents
Lumileds LLC of San Jose, CA, USA says that the International Trade Commission (ITC) has issued its final determination of no violation in the investigation initiated by US-based Lighting Science Group (LSG) seeking to bar the importation of certain products made by Lumileds into the USA. Lumileds adds that the ITC ruled in favor of it on all fronts, finding that its products do not infringe US patent number 7,528,421, that the patent is invalid, and that LSG lacked the required domestic industry.
This decision follows a previous determination that Lumileds does not infringe US patent numbers 7,095,053 and 7,098,483. The investigation has now been terminated.
“We are pleased with the ITC’s thoughtful analysis of the issues and findings of no violation,” comments Lumileds’ chief legal officer & senior VP Cheree McAlpine. “We will continue to defend and protect our valuable intellectual property rights while respecting those of others.”
