Intellectual Property Rights
HICKIES maintains an active worldwide intellectual property portfolio and our patents in U.S. and International countries protect our products.
We are constantly monitoring the Internet, social media platforms, trade shows, manufacturers, and retailers. HICKIES has successfully pursued customs recordation and customs enforcement actions, including seizures, in the European Union, China, and Japan and is customs-registered in other countries as well.
Through our enforcement actions, HICKIES has successfully enjoined the activities of alleged infringers of our intellectual property, including suspension of operations for several Internet retailers. Recently, we received three favorable preliminary injunction court rulings in Europe, including money damages, against alleged infringers. In Japan and China, our enforcement actions have resulted in certain retailers to cease selling and offering infringing goods.
HICKIES takes infringements of its intellectual property rights very seriously and takes legal action against those responsible. It is our policy to protect our business partners by active policing of our brand, products, and intellectual property rights, and we work hard to respect the rights of others.
In accordance with Section 287(a) of Title 35 of the United States Code, the reader is hereby placed on notice of HICKIES, Inc's rights in the United States Patents listed on this site.
