Dürkopp Adler successfully stops copyist from China from infringement of IP rights

CHNKI Precision Sewing Machine Co., Ltd. pays damages to Dürkopp Adler

The largest European manufacturer of industrial sewing machines, Dürkopp Adler, keeps fighting on broad front against the infringement of his intellectual property rights in China. The German based   machine manufacturer has sued the Chinese company CHNKI Precision Sewing Machine Co., Ltd. for the infringement of its patents through CHNKI´s eyelet buttonhole sewing machines MEB 1580 and 1580A in China.
In October 2015 the parties have agreed in a law suit in front of Shanghai No.1 Intermediate People’s Court that CHNKI undertakes to respect the concerned patent rights of Dürkopp Adler and immediately ceases and desists from manufacturing and selling its eyelet buttonhole sewing machine MEB-1580 and MEB-1580A series and its follow up models. Moreover CHNKI shall pay damages to Dürkopp Adler.  
Dürkopp Adler as innovation leader of the industrial sewing machine industry is a popular target of copyists worldwide. Since several years the key area of IP violations is located in China, where machines are copied and IP rights are violated on large scale. Dürkopp Adler is firmly discouraging unauthorized use of its industrial property rights and is determined to further pursue the infringement of its IP rights.
