BORA Basic in Australia: Miele revocation action

PRNewswire September 27, 2023

NIEDERNDORF, Austria, Sept. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Miele has filed a revocation action against Australian Patent No. 2012247900 in the name of Wilhelm Bruckbauer, CEO of BORA.

Initially, BORA had issued a formal demand regarding Miele’s infringement of BORA’s intellectual property rights by selling downdraft cooking hobs in Australia. After being notified about the revocation action BORA filed a cross-claim alleging patent infringement by Miele.

After extensive examination, BORA considers that the sale by Miele of its downdraft cooking hobs in Australia clearly infringes its Australian Patent and is pursuing its legal options to enforce its intellectual property rights. 

BORA will enforce and defend its patents and will not accept any infringement of its intellectual property rights. The management of BORA share the view that its patents and other intellectual property must be respected.
