February 13, 2014 - GE Lighting settled with CRS Electronics, ending a patent infringement lawsuit that began in December 2012.

GE alleged that CRS infringed two U.S. patents, 6,799,864 and 6,787,999, related to LED lamp heat sink designs and methods of replacing existing lamps with these designs. CRS agreed to take a license under the two patents.

GE Lighting says the technology covered in the patents is "important to the long-life operation of LED-based lamps" and offers non-exclusive licenses under the patents.
