10. Plaintiff incorporates the preceding paragraphs herein by reference.

12. Plaintiff is the owner of U.S. Patent No. D747,539 (the “’539 Patent”) entitled

2
Case 1:19-cv-00481-UNA Document 1 Filed 03/08/19 Page 3 of 9 PageID #: 3

13. The ’539 Patent is valid, enforceable, and was duly issued in full compliance with

Title 35 of the United States Code.

14. The ’539 Patent claims the ornamental design for a luminaire, as shown below:

’539 Patent, FIG. 1.

AAMSCO PRODUCTS

15. In contravention to 35 U.S.C. § 271 and § 289, Defendant AAMSCO infringed

the ’539 Patent by making, using, selling, and/or offering to sell, or causing others to make, use,

sell, and/or offer to sell LED lighting fixtures, including but not limited to the LINEA-LUX LED

PENDANT Model #LL50, which embodies the design claimed in the ’539 Patent. Photographs

16. On information and belief, AAMSCO’s LED lighting fixtures are sold online and

in this District.

17. As a result of the manner in which the AAMSCO products are sold, a prospective

consumer usually does not have an opportunity to closely examine the product. He or she can

usually only see what is shown online.

18. The overall appearance of the AAMSCO LED lighting fixture is substantially the

same as the design in the ’539 Patent, or is at least a colorable imitation thereof.

19. By way of example, both designs comprise an industrial design, including an I-

beam styled frame, a joiner, and a “window” for where the light diffuses.

20. AAMSCO’s LED lighting fixture even contains the unprotected elements of

Plaintiff’s design, such the placement of the screws for mounting on a ceiling.

21. The ordinary observer, seeing the AAMSCO LED lighting fixture would be

deceived into believing that it is the same as the patented design.

22. On information and belief, AAMSCO has offered their accused design for sale

within the U.S. District for the District of Delaware.

23. On information and belief, AAMSCO is attending the LEDucation trade show in

New York, New York from March 12-13, 2019, where it intends to display the LINEA-LUX

LED PENDANT. Exhibit C.

24. AAMSCO has infringed, and will continue to infringe, the ’539 Patent unless

enjoined by this Court from making, using, offering for sale, importing and/or selling the

accused luminaire design within the United States.

25. On information and belief, AAMSCO induced and/or directed its manufacturers,

customers, and users to infringe upon the ’539 patent in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271(b)-(c).

6
Case 1:19-cv-00481-UNA Document 1 Filed 03/08/19 Page 7 of 9 PageID #: 7

26. AAMSCO’s acts of direct and indirect patent infringement are continuing and

ongoing.

27. On information and belief, AAMSCO’s infringement is willful.

28. As a direct and proximate result of AAMSCO’s direct and indirect infringement

of the ’539 Patent, Plaintiff is suffering damages and irreparable injury for which it has no

adequate remedy at law.

29. AAMSCO’s acts of infringement have caused both immeasurable and measurable

damage to Plaintiff.
