GE Lighting and CRS Electronics Settle Patent Infringement Lawsuit

GE Lighting today announced the settlement of a patent infringement lawsuit filed in December 2012 against CRS Electronics Inc.

The settlement terminates a pending action before the court regarding allegations of CRS Electronics’ infringements of US Patents 6,799,864 and 6,787,999 that cover, among other things, light-emitting diode (LED) lamp heat sink designs and systems and methods for efficiently replacing existing lamps with such designs. The specific terms of the settlement will remain confidential, but as part of the agreement, CRS Electronics has agreed to a license from GE Lighting under the aforementioned patents.  

"We are pleased with this settlement, which demonstrates our commitment to defending GE Lighting's intellectual property across the globe," said Steve Briggs, General Manager – Global Product Management for GE Lighting.  "The ‘864 and ‘999 patents cover technology important to the long-life operation of LED-based lamps. GE Lighting is offering non-exclusive licenses under the ‘864 and ‘999 patents to interested parties."
