US District Court Orders Damages and Permanent Injunctions for Infringement of Unilin’s Bevel and Embossed-In-Register TechnologiesUS District Court Orders Damages and Permanent Injunctions for Infringement of Unilin’s Bevel and Embossed-In-Register Technologies2017-06-28T22:00:00Z

​A United States District Court in Florida has awarded damages to Unilin and granted permanent injunctions in Unilin's favor following a finding of infringement of patents relating to Unilin's bevel or "v-groove" technology and Unilin's embossed-in-register technology. The court made the orders against Wood Floor LLC and related companies, which were further ordered to pay treble damages, costs, and attorneys' fees due to their willful infringement. 

The patents asserted against the Florida companies include Unilin's US Patent No. 6,786,019, relating to Unilin's bevel or "v-groove" technology, and U.S. Patent No. 7,249,445, relating to Unilin's embossed-in-register technology, both dating from 2001.

"This judgment highlights the importance for buyers to ensure that products using Unilin's bevel and embossed-in-register technologies are properly licensed. Unilin will continue to vigorously protect the business of its licensees and those who deal in licensed products," says Bart Van der Stockt of Unilin's IP business unit.
