DyStar, a leading dyestuff and chemical manufacturer, has been successful in securing the destruction of 3.3 tons of textile dyes that infringed one of its patents for reactive red dyes. The dyes were detained at Mersin Free Zones following DyStar’s customs application. The specialised Istanbul IP court subsequently granted a preliminary injunction order.

The destruction took place earlier than expected on September 18, 2018 as the defendant agreed to the destruction and payment of compensation to DyStar before the final verdict of the court, according to DyStar.

DyStar has implemented an anti-counterfeiting programme worldwide since 2013. Turkey has rapidly become one of the most successful jurisdictions in implementing the programme. As part of the enforcement programme, DyStar recorded its patents with Turkish customs, carried out training, analysed each of the seized product samples promptly, and took action over each infringing product by initiating court proceedings where there was no settlement. Thanks to these actions, DyStar has secured the seizure of more than 100 tons of infringing product in Turkey.

Based on this effective programme, 50 custom suspension notifications were notified from four customs administrations. DyStar filed 14 court actions for infringement of its patents. A total of seven nullity actions against its asserted patents were received as counter-attacks, and five of these cases have already been finalised – all in favour of DyStar. This result indicates the strength of DyStar’s patents.

Within this programme, more than 100 informative or warning letters regarding DyStar’s patents have been sent to customers and target companies to build awareness in the market. (GK)
