Oracle Lighting Takes Legal Action Against Chinese Vector™ Grill Knockoffs

We take our intellectual property rights very seriously and are willing to do whatever it takes to prevent the theft of our patented designs. If that means going to court in China or any other country, we'll be there

Shortly after Oracle Lighting's Vector™ Grill was unveiled at a Las Vegas trade show in 2017, alleged Chinese knockoffs began appearing on the market. Now, Oracle Lighting is enforcing their intellectual property rights and filing design patent infringement cases against possible counterfeit producers.

Oracle Lighting recently filed their first case—(2019) Suzhou 05 Intellectual Property First Instance No.580—against an operation producing alleged knockoff Vector™ Grills and other products in the local court in Nanjing in Jiangsu Province, China. Oracle Lighting initiated the action in the hope that it sets an example for other businesses trying to protect their intellectual property rights.

Justin Hartenstein, Director of Product Development at Oracle Lighting, emphasized that this is just the company's first step toward protecting itself against counterfeiters. "We take our intellectual property rights very seriously and are willing to do whatever it takes to prevent the theft of our patented designs. If that means going to court in China or any other country, we'll be there," he said.

Designed for use on the Jeep Wrangler JL, Oracle Lighting's aftermarket Vector™ Grill has earned the company awards from the Specialty Equipment Market Association, including a 2018 Global Media Award and a runner-up award for the Best New Exterior Accessory Product of 2019.
