YKK sues Titex for Patent Infringement

Fastening solutions manufacturer YKK Corporation of Japan has brought an action against Titex Vertriebs-GmbH for infringement of one of its European Patents. The action was brought on January 10, 2020 before the Regional Court Duesseldorf (LG Düsseldorf). The patent protects a slide fastener made of synthetic resin. The slide fastener has distinctive features that include having a waterproof structure and a technology that prevents so called element separation of the slide fastener in the area of the bottom stop under water pressure.

YKK is convinced that its rights have been infringed by Titex Vertriebs-GmbH and after efforts by YKK to settle the dispute out of court failed, they have no option but to seek the help of the court.
