I came across the complaint in an infringement case that is pending at the FPC, between Sanipat GmbH and Hafner AG.

Sanipat asserts EP 2 405 067 B1 and CH 703 691 against certain sealing strips for shower trays, i.e. Hafner’s ISO-SET®.

Sanipat’s CH’691 has already been partially surrendered twice, see below.

EP’067 is currently being challenged in EPO opposition proceedings, see EPO Register. Hafner joined the pending opposition proceedings by intervention; Art. 105(1) lit. a EPC. Oral proceedings are scheduled for 28 November 2019.
