Eaton reported that it settled a patent infringement dispute related to recessed lighting of LED lighting producers Cordelia Lighting and Jimway.
Back in 2016, Eaton filed the original infringement complaint in the US District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. Eaton did not release details of the current settlement but noted that the agreement will result in Cordelia and Jimway licensing the Eaton patents that Eaton alleged they infringed.
“Protecting the intellectual property in our innovative lighting portfolio is something we take very seriously,” said Kraig Kasler, president of the Lighting Division at Eaton. “This settlement and license agreement recognize the value of our intellectual property relating to our LED downlights and ensure that our customers will continue to benefit from the high-quality solutions that the Eaton lighting team has developed.”
