Rieter Wins Patent Dispute in Chinaa

Rieter protects its innovations and products with patents and registered designs. The company takes consistent action against patent and design infringements. In mid-July 2020, in a legal dispute, the Shanghai Intellectual Property Court of the People’s Republic of China ruled in favor of Rieter Ingolstadt GmbH (Germany). 

Rieter machines stand for outstanding quality, high operational safety, excellent performance and user-friendliness as well as unique design. In order to benefit from these characteristics, competitors copy the successful Rieter machine concepts and even adopt the coveted Rieter design.

Rieter protects its innovations by means of patents and registered designs. The company takes consistent action against companies that infringe Rieter patents or designs and copy products or machines. In 2018, Rieter registered design infringe-ments by Shenyang Hongda Textile Machinery Co., Ltd. in relation to double-head draw frames, and decided to file a lawsuit against the Chinese company.

In mid-July 2020, the Shanghai Intellectual Property Court of the People’s Republic of China determined that the double-head draw frames JWF1316 and JWF1316T of Shenyang Hongda Textile Machinery Co., Ltd. are similar to and fall within the scope of protection of the design patent concerned. The defendant Shenyang Hongda Textile Machinery Co., Ltd. was sentenced to compensate the plaintiff Rieter Ingolstadt GmbH for financial losses and expenses.

Consequences of COVID-19 on global supply chain

BGMEA President shares views with Fair Fashion Think Tank

A survey conducted by the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) over 100 apparel manufacturers to learn about the actual scenario of work orders in hands amid the COVID-19 pandemic for the second half (July-December) of the year 2020 has revealed that taking advantage of the work order shortage, the global buyers offered lower prices pushing the average prices down by 14%. The decline in prices of goods will rub salt to the wounds of the manufacturers and they might have to downsize the workers to survive. This means the manufacturers have to run the factory with capacity incurring losses as they have to bear the operation cost as well as the workers’ wages. Since the global retailers are placing fewer work orders due to fall in demand, the Bangladeshi apparel makers have been able only to book 35% orders of its production capacity.

Multi-Stakeholder Letter on UK Garment Factories – 18 July 2020

18 July 2020

Dear Home Secretary

Protecting people being exploited in UK garment factories

We are writing as a broad coalition of parliamentarians, businesses, investors and civil society organisations about our concerns regarding the unethical labour practices taking place in garment factories across the UK. We request that urgent action is taken by the Government to implement a ‘Fit to Trade’ licensing scheme that ensures all garment factories are meeting their legal obligations to their employees.

As we have seen in the media over the last month, a concerning number of garment workers in key hubs in the UK, such as Leicester, have continued to work in factories throughout lockdown without adequate PPE or social distancing measures in place. These reports on the terrible working conditions people face in UK garment factories add weight to concerns which have been raised over the last five years by academics and Parliamentary Committees about the gross underpayment of the national living wage and serious breaches of health and safety law in these workplaces. Unless action is taken now, thousands more people will likely face exploitation. Continue reading Multi-Stakeholder Letter on UK Garment Factories – 18 July 2020
