Avery Fastener wins lawsuit over Plastic Staple ST9000 Attacher
Jul '08
Avery Dennison's Fastener Division announced that Protrim Enterprises, Arteka Inc and Gokhan Erkovan have agreed to a judgment of infringement upon the patented Avery Dennison Plastic Staple ST9000 Attacher.

The permanent injunction prohibits them from importing, making, offering for sale or selling any infringing fastener machines. As part of a settlement, the companies will pay Avery Dennison damages for past infringing sales.

Avery Dennison markets fastener product technology in North America, Europe, Asia and additional regions worldwide. The company's Plastic Staple ST9000 Attacher allows jeans and bottoms manufacturers to economically and efficiently apply waistband tickets and pocket flashers that consumers can conveniently remove subsequent to purchase. The product is also used to create "whisker" lines during stone washing processes.

“The judgment is significant for Avery Dennison given our investment in research and development of patented fastener technology,” said Jeff Raymond, director of product development and marketing, Fastener Division Worldwide. “We will continue to vigorously pursue those businesses that attempt to use our patented technology without authorization.”
