Piaggio Brings Peugeot And Yamaha Before The Court Of Milan For The Counterfeiting Of Piaggio Mp3 Scooter.
Piaggio has sued its competitors Peugeot and Yamaha, for the infringement of a number of European patents granted in his name. In particular, the matter of the dispute is the Piaggio MP3 scooter, first model of scooter with three wheels and an innovative tilting structure, that the Italian company had carefully protected with several patents. Regardless of the risk, Peugeot and Yamaha have allegedly reproduced this feature on their respective models Metropolis 400 and Tricity 125. Therefore, Piaggio has requested the Court of Milan to order the two companies to compensate the damages for unfair competition and to proceed to the withdrawal from the market of the above mentioned products.
