Sino Legend (Zhangjiagang) Chemical Co., Ltd. Prevails in Intellectual Property Dispute

Ending a long-running intellectual property dispute in the tire and rubber industries, the Shanghai Higher People's Court on October 12 rejected a final appeal by SI Group Inc. and SI (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. regarding two patent application rights and trade secret infringement cases. The ruling affirmed Sino Legend (Zhangjiagang) Chemical Co., Ltd.'s ownership of and sole rights to a Chinese patent for its SL-1801 tackifier (Publication No. CN 101338013 /Patent No. ZL 200810041551.7). In its decision, which upheld a lower court decision issued earlier this summer, the Court noted that SI's appeal lacked any factual and legal basis, and reiterated that there was no infringement of any trade secrets by Sino Legend. Further, Sino Legend's process was confirmed to be novel and inventive. In a related dispute, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) last month notified both parties that it was reviewing its initial Section 337 investigation determination in its entirety - not a routine nor matter of course procedure. The ITC's final ruling is expected by end of year, pending confirmation following the re-opening of the federal government.
