MyStromer, Revolt Zycling settle patent infringement suit

Published March 28, 2024

OBERWANGEN, Switzerland (BRAIN) — MyStromer AG and Revolt Zycling AG settled a patent infringement lawsuit with the latter signing a cease-and-desist order and agreeing to pay a confidential settlement amount.

The Swiss Federal Patent Court and the Unified Patent Court ordered Revolt to stop manufacturing and marketing its first-generation Opium e-bikes, which are now banned from sale in Switzerland and various European Union markets.

MyStromer filed the suit for design infringement of the ST7 model. As part of the settlement, Revolt rescinds the nullity claims against the design, and myStromer grants a frame design license for certain models.

Protecting its technologies and intellectual property after investing considerable resources was important to myStromer, the company said in a release.

"We support honest competition, as it stimulates the market and highlights the appeal of S-pedelecs as a means of transport for commuters. But we will not tolerate reproduction of our technical innovations and our protected designs."
