Truer Cooperates with the Lawyers' Office and Wins Foreign Invention Patent Infringement Litigation
Matrix S.p.A. won the first instance of its litigation against Shanghai Exon's patent infringement
Matrix S.p.A. entrusted the Chinese invention patent named "solenoid valve assembly for a combustible gas supply device to an endothermic engine" (Patent No. ZL200680014413.9) to China Truer IP for its agency and the Patent Administration Department of China authorized the patent. The patentee identified by means of comparison that the VITII and VITIII gas nozzles produced, used, promised for sale, and sold by Shanghai Exon Gas Equipment Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Exon Power System Co., Ltd. had fallen into the protection scope of the invention patent claims that it held, which constituted patent infringement. The patentee therefore entrusted China Truer IP to assist with rights protection. China Truer IP cooperated with Guangdong Sincere Partners & Attorneys and filed a lawsuit with Shanghai First Intermediate People's Court in May 2011 on behalf of the patent owner.
After three public trials, Shanghai First Intermediate People's Court determined on May 22, 2012 that Matrix won in the first instance and the two products involved in the infringement litigation had both fallen within the protection scope of the plaintiff's invention patent Claim 1. Meanwhile, Shanghai Exon Gas Equipment Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Exon Power System Co., Ltd. have assumed the civil liability of stopping the infringement and compensate for the loss caused by its production, use, promise to sell, and selling of the VITII and VITIII gas nozzle products alleged to be infringements.
As the patent attorney for the patentee, China Truer IP had, through close cooperation with Guangdong Sincere Partners & Attorneys, successfully maintained the patent owner's legal rights and interests during the patent litigation proceedings. The two offices have also successfully cooperated to maintain patentees' legal rights and interests in the patent litigation of ITLong Smart Elevator.
