Lighting manufacturer files suit to protect intellectual property.

WAC Lighting, Port Washington, New York, a provider of LED lighting solutions, has issued a buyers beware notice after filing suit against Lumien Enterprise, Inc. (d/b/a Lumien Lighting), a U.S. subsidiary of a China based company Jiangsu Sur Lighting Co., Ltd.

Since its founding, WAC Lighting says it has operated at the forefront of emerging technologies, investing in research and development to create new designs and technologies that have helped the company grow into the success it is today.

In order to protect its intellectual property, the complaint names several Lumien landscape products, including spotlights and flood lights, as infringing U.S. Patent Nos. 10,323,832 and 10,465,888 – just two of WAC Lighting’s patented inventions in the lighting space.­­­

The above drawings, originated in WAC Lighting patent documents, have been found in Lumien specifications.

WAC Lighting has issued a notice that anyone, including buyers, resellers and distributors, who buys or sells infringing products from Lumien or its Chinese source may be infringing WAC Lighting’s patent(s). WAC Lighting is prepared to protect its intellectual property rights, including seeking an injunction and damages to prevent any further sale of infringing products in the U.S.

WAC Lighting states that infringing products erode its brand along with its ability to invest in research and development. The company says it is determined to put a stop to any unauthorized copying or stealing of its patented technology and will pursue such infringement to the furthest extent allowable under the law.
