VMI 在中國 打贏與薩馳的重要專利侵權案件

VMI 在中國 打贏與薩馳的重要專利侵權案件 

法院責令薩馳停止侵犯VMI 專利權,并懲罰其支付VMI 賠償金  


盡管近日薩馳官宣在與 VMI 的法律訴訟中打贏了 VMI,然而經相關法律權威核實的真實情況是, 薩馳敗訴,而 VMI 的合法利益受到了法律的維護。關于法院訴訟的詳細說明及近期的審判,詳情 如下:  

近期,中國江蘇省高級人民法院(上訴法庭)審結了對于 VMI 荷蘭公司(以下簡稱 VMI)上訴薩 馳智能裝備股份有限公司(以下簡稱 薩馳)的專利侵權系列案件,也審結了薩馳上訴的一起專利 宣告判決案。法庭審判判決薩馳侵犯關于VMI  輪胎成型機的兩項重要專利,判決責令其立即停止 繼續侵權,并賠付VMI 侵權賠償金人民幣246 萬元(約合320,000 歐元)。  


上訴法庭于2021 年7 月對于5 起訴訟案件中的4 起作出了最終判決。判決為最終的,具有法律效 力的,且可強制執行的。與中國發生的同類侵權案件平均損害賠償金人民幣 10 萬元相比, 薩馳 支付的賠償金額相當高 。 

薩馳逾期拒不履行賠償,VMI 提請法院要求執行判決。法院依法要求薩馳支付賠償金,最終薩馳 服從法院,按照法院要求全額賠付VMI 損害賠償金。  

對于尚未判決的第 5 起專利訴訟案件,VMI 已在初審法庭贏得訴訟。薩馳嘗試使 VMI 的專利權變得無效,但是中國最高人民法院知識產權法庭作出終審判決,支持 VMI 專利權所有主張的有效性。 該專利權是不可撼動的,且可強制執行的。上訴法庭正在下發該判決,我們對此拭目以待。 

如前所述,VMI 注意到,薩馳在 2021 年 7 月 31 日官網上發表新聞稿聲稱“薩馳勝訴”。薩馳作出如此聲明具有高度的誤導性,對于當前系列訴訟案件的真正定論形成完全錯誤的假象。  

薩馳已被法庭裁決侵犯 VMI 的重要專利權,并且已被法庭判決支付數目不小的賠償金,另外還被責令立即停止其侵權行為。這是薩馳的重大失敗,也是VMI 合法利益強有力的證明。  

這只是薩馳與 VMI 公司之間在中國提請法庭審理的專利侵權系列案件的其中之一。VMI 已經在有關薩馳濫用法庭權利和專利侵權行為的法律訴訟中取得勝利,預計我們所有的合法權利今后能長期得到法律的確認和維護。  

VMI 堅信所有公司的知識產權都必須始終受到保護。VMI 也完全尊重中國的司法體系。它公平公正,堅定執行和捍衛IUP 專利者的權力。  

VMI 相信任何侵權或者盜用知識產權的行為理應負法律責任。我們極為欣喜地看到,相關中國法院果斷行動,支持 VMI 的訴求!從而支持和維護所有創新者的權力。VMI 將繼續與侵權行為作斗爭,保護其知識產權的合法權利,維護健康良好的競爭環境。  



 

VMI Wins Key Patent Infringement Cases Against Safe‐Run in China  

 

Injunctions Granted to VMI and Exemplary Damages Awarded  


Despite a recent press release issued by Safe‐Run, claiming victory in legal action against VMI, the true  position, as confirmed by the relevant legal authorities, is a major defeat for Safe‐Run and almost total  vindication of VMI’s position. A detailed explanation of the court action and recent judgements is provided  below.  


The Jiangsu High People’s Court (“appeal court”) of China recently issued final decisions in a series of  patent infringement cases filed by VMI Holland B.V. (“VMI”) against Safe‐Run Intelligent Equipment Co.,  Ltd  (“Safe‐Run”)  and  one  patent  declaratory  judgment  case  filed  by  Safe‐Run.  Safe‐Run  were  found  infringing  on  VMI’s  two  key  patents  relating  to  tire  building  machines  and  were  ordered  by  court  to  immediately stop infringements and pay VMI damages totaling RMB 2.46 million (around EUR 320,000).  


The appeal court issued final decisions in four out of the five cases in July 2021. The decisions are final,  effective and enforceable. The damages awarded are very high, comparing to the average damage awards  of around RMB 100,000 in similar cases in China.  

As Safe‐Run failed to pay damages within the required time period, VMI petitioned the court to execute  judgement. The court then demanded payment from Safe‐Run, which eventually complied and paid VMI’s  damages in full, once required to do so by the court.  


As to the 5th still pending patent case, VMI already won at trial court. Safe‐run tried to invalidate the VMI  patent, but the Chinese Supreme People’s Court’s Intellectual Property Tribunal issued a final decision  upholding the validity of all claims of the patent. The patent is stable and enforceable. The appeal court  is issuing decision and we are awaiting this decision with confidence.  ?  


As stated earlier, VMI has noted Safe‐Run’s press release published on July 31, 2021, claiming “Safe‐Run won the cases”. The statements made by Safe‐Run in this press release are highly misleading and give an entirely false impression of the true position in ongoing litigation.  


Safe‐Run was ruled by the court to have infringed on VMI’s key patents and was ordered by court to pay significant damages and to cease its infringements at once. This is a major defeat for Safe‐Run and a strong vindication of VMI’sposition.  


This is just one of a series of legal cases between VMI and Safe‐Run that are now before the courts in China. VMI has already been successful in court actions related to abuse of court and patent hijacking by Safe‐Run and expects to have all its rights confirmed in the long term.  


VMI strongly believes that intellectual property rights belonging to all companies must be protected at all times. VMI also has complete respect for the Chinese judicial system, which has shown itself determined to act with integrity and impartiality to safeguard the rights of IUP owners.  


VMI believes any infringements or misappropriation of intellectual property rights should be subject to liabilities and is extremely pleased that the relevant Chinese courts have acted decisively to find in favor of  VMI  and,  by  doing  so,  support  the  rights  of  all  innovators.  VMI  will  continue  to  fight  against infringement to protect its intellectual property rights and maintain healthy competition.
