Legal action compelled by infringement of our patent for light-curing instant adhesives (28th July, 2011)
On July 22, 2011, ThreeBond Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “we”) filed a lawsuit in Tokyo District Court against Miyake Applied Science Institute, Inc. and Prof Precision Co., Ltd. in the matter of light-curing instant adhesives manufactured and sold by these companies. We took legal action to force the cessation of infringement by these parties of our patent No.3428325 and for payment of damages. Before taking legal action, we had attempted to settle the issue through discussions with the two companies. Unfortunately, we failed to reach agreement, compelling us to take legal action. We are the world’s first manufacturer to develop light-curing instant adhesives. We hold patents on these adhesives, including Patent No.3428325. We regard our patents and other intellectual property rights as important management resources, which we draw on in the most effective ways possible to continue to provide products and services that meet customer needs. We reserve the right to take necessary legal action against any parties to protect our rights and resources.
