Liquileds and Segula win soft-filament lawsuit

(Germany) – Legal dispute over distribution rights ends with patent lawsuit win for lamp manufacturer and distribution partner Segula.

The flexible LED filaments from Liquileds, are used in many of Segula’s LED lamps and have firmly established themselves in the market since they were introduced at the 2016 Light + Building show in Frankfurt.

The new concept in LED filament technology immediately attracted many imitators, however the judgement announced on 2 December 2019 by Mannheim Regional Court, ruled in favour of Liquileds and Segula, which owns the rights to distribute the soft filament lamps.

The primary objective of the lawsuit was to defend the existing intellectual property rights, to disseminate the latest technologies and to gain the attention and appreciation of other market participants.

Moving forward, Segula aims to inform the industry of this decision and continue to develop the LED segment together with its partner Liquileds.
