Unilin Technologies, the IP division of Unilin, announced the resolution of a longstanding intellectual property court case with Floors@Work, a Canadian importer and retailer of flooring products.
The settlement puts an end to the legal proceedings initiated by Unilin in Canada on January 15, 2019. As part of the overall resolution, Floors@Work has agreed to make an undisclosed payment in damages to Unilin. This settlement effectively brings an end to the court case, with a trial originally scheduled for the end of January 2024.
The L2C labels, unique and numbered holographic stickers, are required to be attached to boxes of flooring products produced by manufacturers in certain regions. The labels are essential for glueless locking products, and any product without the correct L2C label will be considered unlicensed, even if manufactured by a licensed company. Legal actions will be taken against such products to maintain the integrity of Unilin's licensing program.
