Bridgestone wins design rights infringement lawsuit in China

Bridgestone won a design rights infringement lawsuit against major Chinese tire manufacturer Shengtai Group  recently.

The disputed design rights pertained to the tread pattern for the Bridgestone ST3000 truck tyre.

In September 2015, Bridgestone filed the lawsuit with the Beijing Intellectual Property Court. The lawsuit claimed that tyre manufacturing and sales activities conducted by Shengtai Group utilised a truck tyre tread pattern patented by Bridgestone and these activities were therefore in violation of the design rights.

In January 2019, the Beijing Intellectual Property Court upheld Bridgestone’s claim and ordered Shengtai Group to pay Bridgestone damages in the amount of 10 million Chinese yuan and the winning lawsuit has been finalised.
