Safe-Run reports progress in VMI patent dispute

0

Safe-Run says it has made significant progress in the patent invalidation and patent litigation process against VMI. The Patent Reexamination Board of State Intellectual Property Office declared that VMI’s invention patent, ‘Assembly for and Method of Making a Tyre Component’, is entirely invalid. The patent declared invalid is deemed to have not existed in the first place. In addition, the court has dismissed VMI’s litigation action against Safe-Run for this patent infringement.

Safe-Run has said it attaches great importance to independent R&D and intellectual property protection, and respects patent rights of other companies. Considering this patent dispute as an opportunity, Safe-Run says it will continue to actively respond to challenges, put more emphasis on the strategy of intellectual property development, and devote great efforts to make positive contributions to the tire industry.
