Signify Responds to EdisonReport’s Story on IP Litigation Regarding Hue
FROM: Elco van Groningen, Senior Manager Press Office, Signify in Amsterdam
“We indeed filed the lawsuit against Yeelight alleging infringement of five U.S. patents. These five asserted patents are part of the EnabLED licensing program, under which licenses are available to companies offering products that practice these patented technologies. The patents generally relate to different technologies and techniques for color-changing and tunable white LED-based lighting systems, driving or controlling LEDs, wirelessly-controlled LED-based lighting systems, and temperature control and construction of wireless LED-based products.
We filed this case as we believe that our patents are infringed and valid. We respect other companies’ or individuals’ intellectual property in the same way as we expect others to respect our intellectual property.”
