Jakob Muller successfully applied for and enforced interim injunctions to stop design patent infringements against Chinese firms at the on-site Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Office at the recently held ITMA Asia + CITME 2018 expo. The company is a manufacturer of woven and knitted tapes and webbing, woven ropes, woven labels, and textile machinery.

In order to protect the lawful interest of intellectual property rights owners during the exhibition, the sponsors of ITMA Asia + CITME 2018 installed an IPR Office, which consisted of the sponsors, external IPR administrative authority, and IPR practitioners, the company said in a media statement.

The subsidiary corporation COMEZ International of Jakob Müller, has at the on-site IPR Office, successfully applied for interim injunctions to stop design patent infringements against Chinese manufacturers DKY Machinery, Huibang Machine, and Dah Heer Industrial.

On the first day of the fair, Jakob Müller found that the machines of the three companies showed clear violation of COMEZ’s intellectual property without Jakob Müller’s or COMEZ’s permission. The patentee at once filed a complaint to the IPR Office against these companies, to prohibit the exhibition of the infringing systems.

The IPR Office served the complaint materials to three companies on the second day of the fair and set a time limit of 24 hours for a counterstatement to the three infringers. One of them, Dah Heer, removed the infringing system actively, and the others, DKY and Huibang, submitted a counterstatement. After the IPR Office assessed these statements and evaluated the possibility of the infringements, the IPR Office required them to remove the systems concerned in the patent on October 17, 2018. The systems concerned were removed by DKY and Huibang and were not exhibited any more until the end of the fair. (GK)
