US Court upholds INVISTA’s permanent injunction against M&G in PET resin patent infringement case
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed the Delaware U.S. District Court’s judgment that M&G indirectly infringed INVISTA’s U.S. Patent No. 7,943,216, and that the patent is valid.
The court also affirmed the District Court’s entry of the permanent injunction against the manufacture, use, and sale of M&G’s PoliProtect™ APB and PoliProtect™ JB products in the United States, or the exportation of M&G’s PoliProtect™ products from the United States.
