Patent Infringement Notices

December 12, 2019

(Copenhagen, Denmark) On December 12, 2019 The Maritime and Commercial High Court of Denmark rendered a judgement acknowledging that the manufacturer of Miiibelt products, Miiego ApS (Denmark) has been infringing the design rights held by Overton Enterprises LLC for the Spibelt product design as shown here:

SPIbelt product design

SPIBelt product design
SPIbelt Original
SPIBelt Original

Miiego ApS had been promoting three running belts, namely Miibelt (one pocket), Miibelt (two pockets) and Miibelt PRO.

Following unsuccessful attempts to have Miibelt voluntarily withdraw their products from the EU market, Overton Enterprises initiated court proceedings to resolve the conflict and end the infringement.  Overton Enterprises is happy to announce that the High Court has confirmed that the products of Miibelt are indeed infringing on the registered rights of Spibelt as registered under EU design registration No. 00879150-001 and has ordered a permanent, Europe wide injunction against all three Miibelt products as shown below:

Miibelt (one pocket)
Miibelt (one pocket)
Miibelt (two pocket)
Miibelt (two pockets)
Miibelt PRO
Miibelt PRO

The Court decision states as follows:

’ terms of the design, there is a significant degree of similarity between the Miibelt products and Overton’s design registration, and the details in design differences that exist, do not provide the informed user with a different overall impression. Accordingly, MIIEGO’s MIIBELT products constitute an infringement of Overton’s design registration’.

To stop the infringement by Miibelt, the Miiego company has been ordered to recall and remove their products from their retailers and collaborators in the EU.

Overton Enterprises is encouraged by this important decision of the High Court, which is no longer appealable and this final. The decision of the High Court supports and defends the investments made by founder Kim Overton into the innovation, design and development of a unique and distinctive product created to solve a the longstanding problem of storing small personal items during running and other physical activities.

As we continue the journey into developing products solving other everyday – and potentially lifesaving – issues, Overton Enterprises wishes to thank our customers and loyal business partners for your continued support and cooperation.
