This is a significant win for Luminara Worldwide LLC, which filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota to stop the infringement of its U.S. Patents which represent technology used to create Luminara’s collection of flame-replicating designer candles. Luminara is the exclusive licensee for the Artificial Flame Technology, which was originally created by Disney Enterprises.

“We are happy the Court ruled in Luminara’s favor. Luminara remains steadfast in protecting its intellectual property rights,” said Elliott Resnik, CEO, Luminara. “More importantly, we remain committed to delivering innovative products and world-class service to our customers.”

The only place to get authentic Luminara candles with its “real flame-effect” technology is either directly through Luminara or Darice, Inc. its exclusive US wholesale distributor. To learn more about Luminara and its candle products please visit luminara.com.
