Patent on Hymmen's digital printing flooring technology has been approved.

BIELEFELD, Germany - Hymmen Germany, a global digital printing systems provider, announced Nov. 25 that it had won a digital printing patent infringement litigation against Barberán S.A. 

The Court of Düsseldorf, Germany, found Hymmen’s digital printing patent (EP2313281) to be infringed by Barberán. Prior to this decision, the European Patent Office had also confirmed the validity of the patent during opposition proceedings, the company says.
