The Supreme Court upheld the decision of the First Instance Court that the defendant had been using oval-shaped signs that fell within the scope of the patent since 2008, without the consent of the plaintiff. No defence was invoked during the proceedings, hence the defendant had infringed the plaintiff’s specific patent right.
