Boa Granted Injunction Against Copy Cat Lace Co.

In a great example of why it pays to stay up on your patent and copyright protection, lacing system OEM Boa Technology was granted an injunction by German courts against a Taiwanese company that exhibited a similar lacing system at the recent ISPO trade show. The injunction prohibits Rong Jou Ent. Co Ltd., doing business as A TOP, from importing, selling, or offering certain reel and lacing systems, which the court says infringes on Boa's European patent, in Germany.

"We are very pleased the court has granted this important injunction," said Gary Hammerslag, CEO of Boa Technology Inc. "This ruling confirms the importance and strength of our patents that protect our innovative technology. Boa Technology Inc. has developed unique closure systems for footwear and other products for premium brand customers and we are committed to enforcing our patents to protect many years of investment and the superior image associated with our products".
