Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. The test for infringement qualitative not quantitative. I see it is a registered design - does the design you have share any functionality with the design you are alleged to have infringed? How much is being claim from you? Kind regards AJ
Thank you. Where do you import the items from? Is the same manufacturer? Kind regards AJ
Thank you. How much profit would you lose if you stopped selling the products? They are asking you to pay their legal costs - have they given any indication of this? Kind regards AJ
Thank you. If you do not stop selling the items - the risk is you may be subject to an infringement claim. On that you have to be satisfied that you could defend a claim for infringement. Is there anything you obtain from the Chinese manufacturer to show the created the design independently? Kind regards AJ
