Beijing IP Court recently made first-instance rule in a patent infringment case between Danfoss and individual surname Hao and Zhejiang Hengsen Group, ordering the two defendants stop producing and distribution infringment products, and paid Danfoss 1.562 million yuan on compensation.
Danfoss is the patent owner of thermal valves (patent number:ZL200480014368.8). Previously, Danfoss accused the individual surname Hao and Zhejiang Hengsen Group of infringing its patent right, and demanded 70 million yuan in compensation in Beijing IP Court. Danfoss also asked them to stop producing and selling the offending products.
Danfoss held that offending products sold and distributed by defendants infringed its patent right. Hengsen Group’s action of distribution of offending products without obtain permission constituted infringement. Hao argues that the turnout of products alleged of infringement is small, which could not cause loss for Danfoss. Hengsen Group argues that the label used on the offending products can’t proved that they were made by Hengsen Group.
The court held that, even though Hengsen Group was reasonable to question the products bought by Danfoss, but Hengsen Group’s technical solutions on its products fell into the protection scope of patent of Danfoss. Without permission, Hengsen Group infringed the patent right of Danfoss for making and selling the products and should take the responsibility by law. Hao, as another defendant, held the claim that the products he bought was not made by Hengsen Group but without evidence for products origin. And surname Hao admitted he had sold the same pattern products made by Hengsen Group, which infringed the patent rights of Danfoss. Accordingly, the court made the judement of first instance.

  2015年5月,北京知识产权法院对丹佛斯有限公司(Danfoss) (下称丹佛斯公司)诉郝某、浙江恒森实业集团有限公司(下称恒森集团)侵犯专利权一案进行了公开开庭审理,并于日前作出一审判决: 判定郝某、恒森集团侵权,赔偿丹佛斯公司共计156.2万元。
此前,丹佛斯公司以侵犯其“热力用阀门装置”(专利号ZL200480014368.8)发明专利权为由,将郝某、恒森集团起诉至北京知识产权法院,要求两被告停止制造、销售侵权产品并销毁用于制造侵权产品的专用设备,赔偿700余万元。
庭审中,丹佛斯公司认为,郝某销售、许诺销售的产品,恒森集团制造、销售、许诺销售的产品均落入了其专利权保护范围;恒森集团未经其许可,擅自许诺销售侵犯其专利权的产品,构成了专利侵权。郝某认为,其销售的被控侵权产品数量极少,不会给原告造成明显损失。恒森集团认为,原告在本案中提交的被控侵权产品无直接标识显示是由其制造并销售的,故恒森集团无法确认其是否侵权。
北京知识产权法院经审理认为,恒森集团未经专利权人许可,以生产经营为目的制造和销售被控侵权产品的行为侵犯了丹佛斯公司的专利权;被告郝某在日常经营过程中销售了由恒森集团制造的同类型产品,侵犯了丹佛斯公司的专利权,两被告都依法应承担相应的法律责任。据此,北京知识产权法院依法作出一审判决。
