盖茨公司关于莱顿公司诉盖茨公司、奇瑞公司、新世纪公司专利侵权纠纷的声明

2018/08/20

近日,中国江苏省高级人民法院针对莱顿公司起诉盖茨公司及奇瑞公司关于使用非圆轮的正时皮带系统的专利侵权案件作出二审判决。法院认定盖茨公司及奇瑞公司构成对莱顿专利权的侵犯。此前,本案的一审由中国苏州市中级人民法院审理,在一审过程中,法院驳回了莱顿公司的全部诉讼请求,认定盖茨公司及奇瑞公司并未构成对莱顿专利的侵犯。本案审理共历经近6年时间,先后进行了数次技术鉴定及评估,共有10余名行业内的技术专家、学者参与进行案件调查及论证。本案的核心问题在于如何合理划定该专利的保护范围,使其不致于不恰当地覆盖到公有领域技术及阻碍合法的竞争行为,具有较大的争议。盖茨公司对于法院的判决表示尊重,但不能认同二审法院的观点。根据中国法律的规定,盖茨公司有权向中国最高人民法院进行申诉,最高人民法院依申请将会对案件和判决进行审查,并作出判决是否存在错误及是否应当对该案件进行再审的决定。同时,盖茨公司承诺将通过技术创新及管理优化持续为我们的客户提供服务、创造价值。

 

 

Recently, Jiangsu Higher People’s Court of China rendered a second instance judgment on a patent infringement case brought by Litens against Gates and Chery on the timing belt drive system using non-circular pulley. The court found that Gates and Chery infringed on the Litens’ Patent. Earlier, the first instance was heard by Suzhou Intermediate People’s Court of China. During the first instance, the court rejected all the claims of Litens, and found that Gates and Chery did not infringe on the Litens’ Patent. During nearly six years’ hearing of the case, several technical appraisals and assessments were conducted. More than ten industry experts and scholars participated in the investigation and discussion of the case. The key issue of this case is how to delineate the scope of patent protection so that it would not improperly cover the scope of prior arts and obstruct legal competition. Gates respects the court’s decision, but could not agree with the view of the court of second instance. According to PRC law, Gates has the right to petition the Supreme People’s Court of China for a retrial of the case. Upon such petition, the Supreme People’s Court will review the case and determine whether there is any error made and whether the case should be retried. At the same time, Gates is committed to continuing to provide services and create value through technological innovation and committed services.
