 Last update:2020-02-24  browse:33second

On January 3, 2018, the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) issued an invalidation decision No. 34371, declaring that the patent rights of utility model, entitled "power battery and electric vehicle", owned by Beijing Electric Vehicle Co.,Ltd. were partially invalid.

On June 19, 2017, the Hengbo team accepted the client's entrustment, and through a large number of searches, finally obtained evidence evaluating the patent's creativity and filed a request for invalidation of the above patent. After six months of trial, CNIPA finally made a decision to declare the patent partially invalid, as a result, the patentee had to combine 6 dependent claims into the independent claim 1. So far, the protection scope of the patent has been greatly reduced, and the risk of infringement to client has been greatly reduced.

According to the law, the patentee, who is dissatisfied with the invalidation decision, can file an administrative lawsuit request with the Beijing Intellectual Property Court within three months.

The details of the invalidation decision can be found in the Annex: Invalidation Decision No. 34371.
