Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 02, 2016
Blackbird Technologies has settled patent infringement lawsuits related to LED light bulbs.
Blackbird Technologies filed patent infringement lawsuits in January 2015 on United States Patent No. 7,086,747 in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware. The technology relates to LED light bulbs used as replacement bulbs for fluorescent tubes. Blackbird Technologies settled with Green Creative LLC (15-cv-00059), Home Ever, Inc. doing business as Lighting Ever, Inc. (15-cv-00061), Service Lighting and Electrical Supplies, Inc. doing business as 1000bulbs.com and Precision Lighting and Transformer, Inc. (together, 15-cv-00053).
Sean Thompson, Senior Litigation Counsel at Blackbird Technologies, stated, “It was gratifying to resolve these suits in a way that made sense for all parties involved.”
Norman Hess and Lyman Nielson, the inventors of this industry-changing technology, went down the same path of so many inventors and small companies. Excited about their invention and eager to move forward with it, they filed for patent protection. Their attempts to manufacture their product proved too costly and monies raised through investors proved inadequate to complete the effort. Finally, after years of trying to make money from their important invention, they gave up.
Wendy Verlander, President and CEO of Blackbird Technologies, stated, “This story is all too common among inventors and small companies. They have so few, if any, options to make money from their significant inventions. They are left watching others, typically large companies, make the money that should have gone to them. Blackbird’s mission is to help these smaller players get what is rightfully theirs. We are very pleased to be able to make a difference for these inventors and companies.”
Norman Hess, co-inventor of the patent-in-suit, added: “After many years of trying to bring this invention to the market, we hit a brick wall. I thought we would never see a penny until I spoke with Blackbird Technologies. With them, I have seen real value from our patent.”
