Bosch wins lawsuit in counterfeit auto parts case

Bosch gets injunction in counterfeit auto parts case

On Jan 27, 2017 Robert Bosch L.L.C. file a civil counterfeit auto parts action against SIC Autoparts L.L.C, a Florida auto parts wholesaler. Bosch accused SIC of counterfeiting, trademark infringement and unfair competition. Bosch accused SIC of selling canister purge valves and representing them as genuine Bosch products. The SIC valves had the Bosch trademarked logos but were not genuine Bosch parts.

After discovery the parties entered into a joint permanent injection that prevents SIC from using the Bosch name or trademark on any promotional, marketing, advertising or goods and services for products that are not manufacturers by Bosch.
