SNB WINS VICTORY IN CHINESE PATENT REVOCATION PROCEEDINGS
With a decision from March 2018 the Chinese Patent Review Committee in Beijing has rejected an application of a Chinese sensor manufacturer for revocation of a utility model of a client of SNB. Our client, a European semiconductor manufacturer, was granted this utility model in 2015 for a new device to operate passive infrared sensors. This is an important step towards strengthening the Chinese property right portfolio of our client. As far as this utility model is concerned, our client has currently also an infringement action against the Chinese sensor manufacturer pending before a Chinese court.
