Indspec Chemical Corporation v. N.V. Sumitomo Bakelite Europe, Court of Antwerp, Belgium, 2 July 2010, Case No. A/09/08112
"On 16 July 2009, Indspec enforced a descriptive seizure upon Sumitomo Bakelite Europe, alleging infringement of its European Patents EP’741 and EP’792, which relate to rubber compounding resins (a cord-to-rubber adhesion promoter). Subsequent to the filing of the descriptive report, Sumitomo initiated proceedings on the merits, claiming a revocation of the asserted patents. Indspec filed a counterclaim for wilful patent infringement (on the basis of EP’741), unfair commercial practices and non-compliance with product regulations (classification, packaging and labelling)."
