Westinghouse settles patent dispute with Canadian Solar's supplier

(Reuters) - Westinghouse Solar Inc WEST.O, which is being bought by Australian-based CBD Energy CBD.AX, said it settled a patent infringement dispute with Zep Solar, a supplier to its rival Canadian Solar Inc (CSIQ.O).

Westinghouse filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission in October, alleging that Canadian Solar and Zep Solar sold a product using proprietary technology that was part of Westinghouse Solar's Andalay module.

The company had sought a ban on the products from being imported into the United States.

Terms of the dispute settlement were not disclosed by the company.

Westinghouse shares were up 11 percent at $0.19, and those of Canadian Solar were down 2 percent at $2.86 on Thursday on the Nasdaq.
