News from IKAN is that they are going to fight the Litepanels 337 complaint. Here is the IKAN press release talking about the fight.
Litepanels, Ltd. and Litepanels, Inc. on August 3, 2011, filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission in Washington D.C. The complaint, entitled In Re Certain LED Photographic Lighting Devices and Components Thereof, DN 2838, seeks to prevent IKAN Corporation and fourteen other companies from the importation and sale of solid state and LED lighting devices and components, pursuant to section 337 of Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337). Litepanels seeks a general exclusion order which, should they prevail, would allow them to prevent LED photographic lighting and other devices from entering the United States in the future, and without further hearings, review or approval from any outside group or governing body.
