Smart Technologies ULC v. CTouch Europe B.V., District Court The Hague, 26 July 2017, Case No. ECLI:NL:RBDHA:2017:8247
Smart Technologies is the holder of a patent on smart television screens. CTouch’s Gillette defence fails as there is a theoretic and practical difference between its products and the prior art. Injunction and ancillary claims awarded.
Update: CTouch Europe B.V. has appealed against the judgement. The appeal is pending before the Court of Appeal in The Hague, the Netherlands.
