The Canadian Federal Court recently gave its decision on the damages of a case between Glaston Group and Northglass Technology & Industry Co. Ltd.

On April 29, the court ordered Shanghai Northglass to pay Glaston approximately $1.8 million, including interest, in damages as a result of a November 2010 court ruling on Northglass’ infringement of Glaston’s two patents for its unique tempering and bending technology.

The Court declared that Northglass infringed Glaston’s Canadian Patent Nos. 1,308,257 and 2,146,628. Glaston says it will continue to be active in protecting its intellectual property rights globally and currently has several proceedings and investigations ongoing in Europe, the U.S. and Asia.
