Epe, The Netherlands – VMI Holland issued a statement on 15 Nov welcoming decisions made by a Chinese court in its long-running patent infringement dispute with Safe-Run.

The Higher People’s Court of Jiangsu Province on 3 Nov refused Safe-Run’s application to set aside the first instance judgements against them made in a lower court, reported VMI.

The court also upheld a previous ruling to impose “heavy damages” for “continued infringement of one of VMI’s patents in China,” added the Dutch tire & rubber machinery maker.

The legal dispute dates back to December 2016 when VMI brought a legal action against Safe-Run and its related company for an alleged infringement of a patent covering technology used in the manufacture of tires.

According to VMI, throughout the dispute, patent authorities and courts in China have upheld the validity of its patent and initial infringement judgements have been issued in its favour.

The judgements by the Intermediate People’s Court of Suzhou Municipality have now “been confirmed and made effective by the higher court,” VMI said in its latest statement.

The rulings, it claimed, confirm that Safe-Run “has infringed VMI’s patent, ordered it to stop the infringement immediately, and made final an award of more than 3 million Renminbi (€417,000) to VMI…”

Other court cases between VMI and Safe-Run continue, the Dutch group’s statement further pointed out.
