VMI awarded damages in Shuangjun case
The Chinese Intellectual Property Court has upheld VMI’s claims against Shuangjun Plastic and Rubber Machinery Ltd. and awarded the full compensation requested by VMI to be paid by Shuangjun. The Chinese Patent Management Bureau ruled that Shuangjun was guilty of patent infringement against VMI’s patent for its tyre building drum back in 2015.
Announcing the news, a VMI statement added: “This ruling constitutes an enormous triumph in VMI’s fight against patent infringement. It confirms our faith in the Chinese judicial system and strengthens us to continue to identify all significant patent infringements and respond rapidly and vigorously in every such case.”
