China's Aigo Wins Patent Suit against Toshiba

2011/11/2

Beijing, Nov.1 (PD Online) --Recently, Huaqi Information Digital Technology Co., Ltd. (Aigo), one of China's electronics giants won a lawsuit against Toshiba over a patent violation.

For the first time, a Chinese brand won the lawsuit against a foreign brand according to Chinese standards concerning intellectual property.

Aigo asked Japanese electronics major Toshiba to stop selling some of its notebook computers in China because they infringed on six Aigo patents for USB Plus, a storage port technology used in Toshiba's laptop and notebook computers.

In 2009, Aigo introduced its USB Plus, which had two inventive patents and six utility model patents. It was set as China's independently developed intellectual property standard. There are at least 60 million computers suspected of infringing the patent of Aigo last year.

It was this “Whampoa Military Academy” for IP that educated China’s first batch of corporate IP management personnel. Many of these engineers left Foxconn in the years since.
