CC warns against intellectual property infringement

Container Centralen is the developer and owner of the CC Trolley Pool system. The original CC Container is a high-quality asset which enables an affordable and sustainable pool operation. Unfortunately, counterfeit products are added to the pool, resulting in quality deterioration. CC warns industry professionals against infringement, abuse and misuse of its intellectual property rights in the public domain without authorisation.

In 2001, the intellectual property of Container Centralen (CC) was found to have been infringed by Trocobel NV.

The infringement involved the illegal counterfeiting of the CC metal plate and CC tag, which are attached to CC Containers to confirm their authenticity.

In 2009, there was a final judgment against Trocobel NV as well as its affiliates, as a result of which CC was awarded EUR 1.7 million compensation by a Belgian court for damages suffered.

In 2011, a judgment also upheld this ruling on appeal.

Now in 2023, after 13 court rulings and 22 years of persistence, CC has been able to collect a substantial amount of the aforementioned damages after seizing several bank accounts of the condemned party.

CC’s policy is to fight all infringement of its Intellectual Property Rights and, where possible, to find out which parties are initiating and enabling infringement.

CC currently has a number of legal cases pending to obtain compensation from those circulating illegal tags and metal plates.
