First Patent Victory of Unilin in ChinaFirst Patent Victory of Unilin in China2008-05-19T22:00:00Z

Unilin is proud to announce that the SIPO (the Chinese intellectual property office) in Beijing has confirmed the validity of more than 20 patent claims of Unilin Chinese patent CN1087056.

This patent is one of the 2 granted patents and 20 patent applications of Unilin in China that protect the glueless technology in flooring panels. An opposition was filed on March 23, 2006 to invalidate this patent by certain Chinese organizations.

The decision by the SIPO results in a patent that claims essentially the same as its European and US counterparts in relation to similar patents in those regions. It is further confirmation of the 2007 decision of the US International Trade Commission (ITC).

“This is of course a crucial step in Unilin’s Chinese enforcement strategy”, according to Raymond Hegarty, managing director of Flooring Industries. “It is clear that our legal team will take the next steps in stopping the illegal sales in China which are harming the business of our Chinese partners and licensees exporting to China”.
