Unilin defends its patents against infringement by Pergo, Uniboard and the Pfleiderer GroupUnilin defends its patents against infringement by Pergo, Uniboard and the Pfleiderer Group2008-03-06T23:00:00Z


March 6th 2008  -  Unilin's license agreement with Pergo for glueless locking systems was terminated according to the terms of the prior agreement. Presently Pergo, Uniboard and Pfleiderer are infringing upon Unilin's patents by selling and importing glueless flooring in the U.S. and other countries.

The importation of unlicensed flooring products from the Canadian Uniboard operations into the U.S. is a further violation of the International Trade Commission's general exclusion order #337-TA-545 issued on January 5th 2007. Negotiations to resolve this matter and not disrupt the market place have not been successful. Unilin will now progressively pursue its options to defend its patent rights which have been confirmed valid and infringed by many courts in many countries.

Unilin has recently been informed that Pergo now accuses Unilin of infringing on a number of their U.S. patents. Unilin is confident that the allegations are groundless. It has to be noted that the largest Pergo patent family in the suit contains patents which have recently been invalidated by a jury verdict of the Eastern district court in Wisconsin. Other asserted patents relate to outdated technologies which are not utilized by Unilin and are irrelevant.

Unilin's pioneering research continues to result in strong patents covering the best technologies available for the flooring industry. Unilin has a broad range of licensees who represent the majority of the flooring industry and Unilin will continue to support its licensees and stop the illegal use of its technology in the market place.
