Rolser acts against illegal copies.
Rolser is aware of the importance of creative processes, both in a technical scope, as well as the scope of design. For many years, the company has had a research and development department, which is an essential part of its organisation and is comprised of professionals from several different areas.
As a logical consequence of this continuous creative process, Rolser is the registered holder of a large number of national, European and international patents, as well Spanish and communitarian designs, which provide protection for its industrial and intellectual property.
Periodically and inevitably, Rolser must take on actions against a breach of the company’s rights, as a consequence of copies made of its patents or designs.
During these actions, Rolser, whenever possible, proposes and chooses extra-judicial agreements, which under the premise of acknowledging their rights and the commitment to withdraw from the market and cessation of marketing the infringing products, are as least detrimental as possible and safeguard the integrity of the manufactured product, resulting if possible in a benefit for third parties which are not involved in normal trade activities.
In one of the latest actions, the offender, after withdrawing the products and stock, and as a part of the extra-judicial agreement, provided Rolser with the unlawfully manufactured shopping trolleys, which were sent to Rolser’s head office, for the company to dispose of them as it deemed appropriate.
Within its line of criteria and action, Rolser decided not to destroy the trolleys and donated them to Cáritas, for this charitable association to use them for their own use and that of the people they help, which is an ever growing number, taking into account the current economic situation.
