EXCLUSIVE. MUST CREDIT EDISONREPORT. EdisonReport can confirm that Lighting Science Group filed a series of patent infringements suits across the country yesterday, asserting multiple patents directed to, among other things, LED chip packaging.
The named defendants so far include Nichia, OSRAM, MLS, LEDVANCE, Leedarson Lighting and Cree. Cree and Nichia have a strong history of fighting patent suits and will be well-prepared. MLS and Leedarson have less experience fighting these types of IP issues.
