Signify has lost its patent suit against Eglo, which marks the fourth attempt to get the company to sign on to its licencing program. The patent relates to a device for retro style LED bulbs.
Signify announced it will appeal, prior to the announcement decision. Eglo is still facing nine patent suits from Signify in Texas.
Signify recently expanded their licencing program, EnabLED, adding 500-600 licences for a total of 1,400. Several companies, like Eglo, were unwilling to accept the licence offer extended by Signify. Signify also has cases in the U.S. against Luxrite/AllStar, Robe Lighting, and Govee/Intellirocks.
