Evonik wins lawsuit on Tegostab trademark infringement in China
Evonik filed a civil lawsuit against the Shanghai QiGuang Corporation for trademark infringement of Evonik’s registered trademark Tegostab in China. The result of the court decision is that Shanghai Qiguang has to stop infringing the registered trademark Tegostab, and to compensate Evonik the incurred damages.
Further, Shanghai Qiguang was required to publish an apology letter in the China Chemical Industry News on 18 July 2013.
Evonik says it does not tolerate any sort of dubious business since success is largely built on trust and in the interest of its customers. “The basis for a lasting relationship between Evonik and its customers is transparency at all stakeholder levels. Therefore we encourage our customers to purchase only from official sales channels,” says Dr. Tammo Boinowitz, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Business Line Comfort & Insulation.
