To whom it may concern:
For the patent infringement dispute cases between Qingdao Volfoni-Rio (refers to Volfoni) and Shenzhen Future 3D Tech Co., Ltd. (refers to GetD), the current rumors severely affect our business activities in the cinema industry. For a better understanding of the truth to our global clients and in order to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of the company, GetD made the following statements:
- As for the lawsuit Volfoni raised against GetD, we didn’t receive anything from the court, no matter about the court decision. There is not any evidence to prove that GetD infringed the patent of any company. It is obvious that Volfoni is desperately trying to stop GetD fast development in China using unfair competition against GetD without any hard evidence to demonstrate the rightfulness of their claims.
- GetD could officially check Volfonis China patent (no. CN201320848220.0.) and found that there are big differences between GetD products and Volfoni’s patent. In this case, we strongly believe there will be absolutely no infringement.
- Volfoni applied invention patent in China but was denied by the official Intellectual Property Office for the first round of checking. The listed reason is that: “Patent without creativity as Part 3 of No. 22 of patent law request”. See more from attachment 1.
- Volfoni’s utility model patent is clearly lacking of creativity. Subsequently GetD had hired professional lawyers to invalidate Volfoni’s patent in China.
- As for the lawsuit by Freedeo against GetD in China, the case has not been finalized yet. GetD also raised a lawsuit against Freedeo on the 24th of Nov, 2015 about Freedeo’s Commercial Defaming Behavior. GetD did receive the Court decision on the 16th of June, 2017 with the following result: Freedeo is losing the lawsuit and has to pay GetD a fee compensation of 80,000RMB for unfair competition. See more from attachment 2.
As a conclusion, Peter Ruan, CEO of Future 3D Group (GetD) added the following comments: “I am very disappointed by unfair competition and damaging practices by Freedeo and Volfoni.” “We strongly condemn any unfair competition against our respectable and professional company without any effective evidence. GetD is a solid and very successful company in China offering high quality products and all related services. We are very proud to keep servicing the industry as always.”
