VMI awarded punitive damages in civil action against Shuangjun

A huge victory in VMI’s fight against patent infringement! The Chinese Intellectual Property Court supported VMI on all claims and awarded the full compensation requested by VMI to be paid by Shuangjun Plastic and Rubber Machinery Ltd. Already in 2015, the Chinese Patent Management Bureau ruled that Shuangjun was guilty of patent infringement against VMI’s patent for its tire building drum.

This ruling constitutes an enormous triumph in VMI’s fight against patent infringement. It confirms our faith in the Chinese judicial system and strengthens us to continue to identify all significant patent infringements and respond rapidly and vigorously in every such case.
