OSRAM accuses both Samsung and LG of infringing its patents on white and surface mountable LEDs in the United States and Germany and accuses LG of such infringement in Japan and China.

OSRAM contends that its has patented electrical and thermal connection structure technologies as well as conversion technology , which is used to convert blue LED light into white light.

"Major competitors such as Philips/Lumileds, Cree, and Nichia have acknowledged our strong IP position by entering into cross-license agreements with OSRAM," said Aldo Kamper, CEO of OSRAM Opto Semiconductors.
