Seoul Viosys files LED patent lawsuit against US-based home lighting firm Feit

Ultraviolet LED product maker Seoul Viosys Co Ltd (SVC, a subsidiary of South Korean LED maker Seoul Semiconductor Co Ltd) has filed a patent infringement lawsuit in the US District Court for the Central District of California against California-based home lighting company Feit Electronic Company Inc.

The complaint asserts that the LED lighting products manufactured and sold by Feit infringe six patented technologies jointly developed by Seoul Semiconductor and Seoul Viosys, including proprietary omnidirectional filament LED technology. Currently, about half of general household light bulbs are filament-type products.

Seoul Semiconductor has also successfully pursued lawsuits against filament LED patent infringers in Europe. In 2020, based on a finding of infringement of Seoul’s patent, the German District Court of Düsseldorf issued two orders for permanent injunctions, recalls and destructions of filament LED products manufactured and sold by the affiliate of Philips brand lighting. Also, due to the establishment of the Unified Patent Court in Europe in 2023, Seoul Semiconductor's filament LED patented technology will be enforced in 18 European countries, including Germany, France, the Netherlands and Italy.
