Clear-Vu Lighting successfully invalidated a key patent pertaining to visible light disinfection technology, which led to a legal settlement with Kenall Manufacturing, and empowered a go-forward right to incorporate this technology in future products.

Clear-Vu Lighting successfully invalidated US Patent No. 9,839,706 (owned by the University of Strathclyde), a key patent pertaining to visible light disinfection technology. This patent was licensed to Kenall Manufacturing and had been asserted against multiple vendors in patent infringement lawsuits.

While Clear-Vu has not previously sold and does not have any current plans to sell products incorporating this technology, Clear-Vu is empowered with a go-forward right to bring such products to market as the result of the invalidation and a legal settlement with Kenall (Kenall Manufacturing Company et al v. Clear-Vu Lighting LLC, Case No. 2:18-cv-01337-WFK-SIL (E.D.N.Y)).
