“We are thrilled with the outcome of the legal proceedings in the German Federal Patent Court,” said Mark Wakeling, Anon’s global general manager. “This decision validates our stance and reinforces our commitment to innovation and fair competition in the industry. We have always maintained that our use of WaveCel® technology in our Anon branded helmets is legitimate, and this ruling affirms that position.”
