DSM takes action against trademark infringers
DSM Dyneema, the producer of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMwPE) fibre branded as Dyneema®, has taken immediate corrective action against infringement if intellectual property (IP) before and during the A+A Show in Düsseldorf (D).
DSM Dyneema initiated a rigorous screening process before the show, brining to light a number of third parties that use Dyneema® brand without authorisation or licence. Corrective action have been taken, and throughout the show DSM will carry out checks to ensure correct follow-up by these parties, as well as conduct additional screening of potential other infringements. The involved parties have received an official warning. If necessary this will be followed up with legal action.
