Successfully defending our intellectual property in ChinaPatent infringement complaints decided in FIDLOCK's favour
The patented FIDLOCK concept is at the heart of our products and allows us to turn the moment of opening and closing into an experience for users. Unfortunately, forgers have also recognized the potential of our innovations. We put a lot of effort into ensuring the safety, unique design and functionality of our products. Our developers plan each detail and test thoroughly. Therefore, we protect our intellectual property – with success.
We managed to effectively defend our IP rights in China: Our four patent infringement complaints filed with the Dongguan Market Regulatory Authority against Dongguan BaDi Sporting Goods Co. were decided in FIDLOCK's favour!
Dongguan BaDi Sporting Goods Co. had offered and sold imitations of our V-BUCKLE, SNAP and SNAP helmet buckle, among others, on their website. The decisions of the Dongguan Market Regulatory Authority from January 2021 find that our Chinese patents ZL200780033868.X, ZL200980103234.6, ZL201080005487.2 and ZL201380065615.6 are clearly infringed by Dongguan BaDi Sporting Goods Co.'s products.
Dongguan BaDi Sporting Goods Co. must therefore immediately cease infringing acts, remove the corresponding images of the infringing products on its website, and cease making, using, promising to sell, and selling the infringing products that are identical or equivalent to invention patents ZL200780033868.X, ZL200980103234.6, ZL201080005487.2, and ZL201380065615.6.
The following products of Dongguan BaDi Sporting Goods Co. are affected by this decision:
Our intellectual property rights have been preserved, our good reputation and the market order have been defended to some extent.
Remember: patent-infringing products are usually of poor quality and can be dangerous in safety-relevant applications! In order to further protect our property rights and your interests as customers and partners in good, high-quality products and components, FIDLOCK will not tolerate any patent infringements in the future!
