NUNSPEET, Netherlands (October 22nd) – Shimano has won its case against DNP and TAIMCO. Again it was the München Landesgericht that decided in favour of Shimano’s patent infringement claim. The EPOCH sprockets made by DNP, Taiwan and marketed by TAIMCO of Germany will no longer be allowed on the market as soon as Shimano deposits the necessary bond. This will be the case if DMP and TAIMCO do not comply with the decision. Furthermore Shimano advises all manufacturers and dealers that the using or selling of infringing cassettes also constitutes an infringement of Shimano’s patent.
