Osram Wins Patent Dispute Against Lighting Science Group


ITC determines that none of the three LSG LED package patents were infringed by Osram products

At the end of April 2019, US-based Lighting Science Group (LSG) filed a patent infringement complaint at the US International Trade Commission (ITC) against Osram and other companies in the lighting industry.

Osram defended the claim against three LSG patents, and the ITC has now determined that none of these patents, all covering LED packages, was infringed by Osram products.

For two patents, the ITC made a non-infringement finding in April 2020. With the recent decision on the third patent, the ITC terminated its investigation, finding the asserted claims of the third patent are invalid and that there was no infringement of the patent by Osram. LSG also failed to show that the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement was met.

Osram's extensive patent portfolio includes a considerable percentage in the United States. The patent portfolio ranges from high-tech semiconductor technology, such as LED or laser lighting, to smart and connected lighting solutions and systems.
