ITC confirms Unilin's ITC Ruling

The US International Trade Commission (ITC) confirmed the Initial Determination of the 15th of May 2020 rendered by ITC Judge Shaw.

All asserted Unilin patents were again considered valid and infringed, and a General Exclusion Order was issued to prevent all importation of PVC-based products fallling under the Unilin patents without license or other permission. Such a general exclusion order means that US customs will actively monitor incoming shipments of flooring products to check whether potentially patent infringing products are indeed produced and sold under required Unilin licensing.

Unidrop is a one-piece, fold-down technology that provides superior locking performance without plastic inserts and guarantees easy installation for the short sides of the panel. Unidrop is the very first one-piece, fold-down technology that can be deinstalled by simply angling out one panel.

L2C Label program

Unilin Technologies introduced the "License to Click" or "L2C Label Program" in April 2012 to identify boxes of flooring products that are given patent protection under a license agreement. Boxes that are not correctly labelled are considered to be unlicensed, even if they are made by a licensee, and will be legally treated as such.
