TRACY® patent: Approved in China, ready for national registration in selected European countries
The primary patent for LED iBond’s flagship product Tracy®, “the Electrical Supply Module patent”, has been approved by the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CN108700284). The approval ensures solid protection of LED iBond International’s (LED iBond) Tracy®-related IP in the Chinese market.
Furthermore, for the European patent process, LED iBond has chosen its home markets and the most important European markets for national registration of the Electrical Supply Module patent (EP3403024). Thus, LED iBond will register the patent in the following eight EPC countries:
Referred to as Patent Family 5 in LED iBond’s prospectus of 20 May 2020, the Electrical Supply Module patent protects both the construction of Tracy® and the Tracy® system, including the integration of LEDs as well as other electronic components in the Tracy® panel, the low voltage power supply function and the “model railway” concept for connecting Tracy® panels.
Lars Frederiksen, CTO of LED iBond, says:
- It is the uniqueness of LED iBond’s technology that keeps us ahead of our competitors. That is why patents are a key element of our business strategy. So I am very pleased indeed that one of our most important patents, the Tracy® patent, has been approved in China and that we are ready to implement the patent in the European market. We will continue our patent activities to protect our leading position in the marketplace – for Tracy® as well as for our products for disinfection and vertical farming.”
The status of the Electrical Supply Module patent in USA and India as reported in LED iBond’s prospectus is unchanged; the patent has already been granted in USA, while it is pending in India.
