Recently, during the process of cleaning up and rectifying offline infringements, ALD found that a company had a weak awareness of intellectual property rights, flagrantly challenged national laws, took risks in order to obtain illegal benefits, openly infringed ALD company’s AC1806 design patent, and pushed a large number of counterfeit and inferior illegal products to the market. And it has seriously violated the legitimate rights and interests of the company, customers and consumers.
In response to this serious violation of law, ALD formally filed a patent infringement lawsuit with the Shenzhen Intermediate People’s Court in May 2019. The specific judgment was finally obtained at the end of August 2020 as follows: First, the defendant was required to immediately stop infringing on our company’s ZL201730134025.5 product design patent, including immediately stopping manufacturing, selling, and promising to sell infringing products, and destroying inventory of infringing products And special molds for manufacturing infringing products; second, the defendant compensated ALD company for economic losses and related expenses incurred in investigating and stopping infringement.
Infringements of patents and copyrights and other violations of law and discipline are common occurrences. In the market of chaotic industries, many unscrupulous merchants are seeking their own gain, and they do not hesitate to speculate and try the law to steal the knowledge and labor of others and use them for profit. This is a serious despicable behavior. It jeopardizes the maximization of the interests of the victims, disrupts the normal maintenance of market order, and violates the legitimate rights and interests of consumers. With the introduction and improvement of relevant policies and measures, further clarify and optimize the business environment, increase the protection of intellectual property rights, and improve the independent innovation capabilities of enterprises.
