Ninestar Wins Patent Dispute Again
RT Media has been informed that a Chinese court issued a final determination over a patent infringement dispute in favour of Zhuhai-based Ninestar.
On October 7, Ninestar filed a lawsuit with the Fuzhou Intermediate People’s Court, alleging that MC-CC388A, MC-Q2612A and MC-CRG303/MC-Q2612X high-yield refillable printer cartridges from Fuzhou Sixi Digital Technology Co., Ltd and Shanghai Luochen Digital Technology Co., Ltd infringed its patent (Patent No. ZL200810218032.3).
The court ruled the two defendants must cease producing, marketing and selling sell the infringing products effective immediately and destroy all remaining infringing stock. In addition, Fuzhou Sixi Digital Technology Co., Ltd was instructed to compensate Ninestar a total of RMB 400,000 (USD$61,263) for economic losses and reasonable expenses incurred to stop the infringement.
In May this year, Ninestar successfully safeguarded its inkjet cartridge patent rights in a patent dispute with Zhongshan Yuzhe Company. In that case, Yuzhe fully acknowledged the validity of Ninestar’s related patents and admitted that a series of its products infringed several of Ninestar’s patents in China and Japan. The company also agreed to pay Ninestar an undisclosed amount of damages.
As a leader in intellectual property rights, Ninestar claims it has invested heavily in R&D and technological innovation. On this basis, it has developed and accumulated a hard-won patent portfolio.
Ninestar has had to defend its intellectual property rights and proactively sustain order within the industry a number of times before. Over recent years it has spared no effort to defend these rights. Having wrapped up this latest victory lately, Ninestar says it is in a determined position to confidently maintain its intellectual property rights around the globe.
