Sport Five Patent: Notice to Members

Thursday May 4, 2017 at 8:04am

Notice regarding “Sport Five” Patent: EP 0,929,874 (GB) Expired January 2017

We are putting the IPM Membership on notice regarding attempted retrospective claims against the above noted Patent, often referred to as the ‘Sport Five’ or the ‘874’ Patent.

We would like our Members to note that the GB Patent has now expired.   We are aware that correspondence has been issued recently to several brands relating to this Patent.

We have already investigated the first claim of the Patent and together with the existence of prior art, have a full report supporting our view on Claim 1 of  the Patent. Note that this has been untested in a court of law and we have not investigated Claims 2-34 of this Patent.  

We would like to hear from any of our Members who have received correspondence. All correspondence will be treated in the strictest confidence. 

Please contact Carey Trevill on 020 3848 0444 or via  careyt@theipm.org.uk
