A patent infringement case involving Columbus-based Cummins Inc. has come to an end. Inside Indiana Business reported that the manufacturer has reached a settlement agreement with California-based JM Turbo Technology Corp., which was accused of manufacturing and selling turbochargers protected by Cummins’ patents.
Cummins says, per the terms of the settlement, JM Turbo Technology acknowledged it illegally marketed and sold the turbochargers protected by the patents and other intellectual property rights registered in multiple countries. The company has agreed to stop all manufacturing, importation, exportation, advertising, and/or sale of all of the infringing products. It must also destroy all existing inventory of the products.
“Cummins is committed to defending our intellectual property as we continue innovating for our customers to power their success,” said Shon Wright, executive director and general manager of Cummins Turbo Technologies. “Integrity is one of Cummins’ core values and we take great pride in doing what is right for our customers and our products. Cummins, with support from our global partners, will continue to examine the marketplace to ensure the company’s intellectual property is protected.”
