PRESS RELEASE

HUNDREDS OF TILTEX ROLLS SEIZED IN RAID ON EUROBENT FACTORY


26TH AUGUST 2020

Court bailiffs raided the premises of Eurobent Sp. z o.o in Poland on the 13th August 2020 and seized 217 rolls of Tiltex™. The material had been manufactured by Eurobent in a clear breach of a preliminary injunction for infringement of Concrete Canvas Technology Ltd.’s (Concrete Canvas) granted patent. Further distribution of the seized product will result in criminal liability with a maximum penalty of imprisonment for up to 5 years for the individuals responsible.

As well as the infringing material seized, the raid provided conclusive evidence that Eurobent were continuing to illegally manufacture Tiltex™ at their facility in Poland in a clear breach of the preliminary injunction in force since April 2018.

An enforcement action is currently in progress in the district court in Swidnica. The fine for non-compliance remains amongst the highest on record set by a Polish court for a case of this type. As part of this action Soprema Polska Sp. z o.o. have been summoned by the court to provide evidence. Soprema distribute the infringing product for Eurobent, in Poland, and elsewhere under their CivilRock™ brand.

Concrete Canvas wish to reiterate that they will robustly seek to enforce their intellectual property rights where they are being infringed by a manufacturer, distributor or otherwise. Such enforcement will occur at a time and in a jurisdiction where Concrete Canvas can best accomplish its objectives. Patents exist to protect and encourage investment in innovation. It is in all of our interests to respect the law, including patent law.
