Laidian Technology Wins Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against JMEI’s Affiliate Jiedian

BEIJING, June 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Laidian Technology has achieved major success in a recent patent infringement lawsuit against Shenzhen Jiedian Technology Co, a wholly owned affiliate of JMEI, with the court ordering the defendant to stop infringing activities and stop the selling of infringing products within 30 days of the judgment.

In an initial verdict handed down by the Beijing Intellectual Property Court on May 25, 2018, the defendant Jiedian Technology was ordered a compensation of 2 million RMB for the plaintiff.

Jiedian was ordered to stop the selling of relevant products that use the patents held by Laidian.

The Beijing Intellectual Property Court found two infringements by Jiedian Technology against two patents held by Laidian: Patent No. ZL201520847953.1, a patent for utility models entitled “Mobile Power Bank Rental Equipment and Fixture Device”, and Patent No. ZL201520103318.2, a patent for “Absorption Style Holding Device for Mobile Power Bank”.

As a leading company in the portable power bank rental service, Laidian Technology remains committed to growing and protecting its patents which now covers more than 120 items at home and abroad.

Laidian has started patent protection at a very early stage and it’s one of the earlier mobile power bank rental company to file for power bank rental related patents since February 2015.

Laidian’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer Binsong Yuan said: “The victory verdict of the case acknowledges and protects Laidian’s intellectual property rights and also enhances our brand value as well as our competitive advantage against other industry players.”

“We will continue to increase our investment in intellectual property rights in the future and further expand our service,” Yuan added.
