Rubbermaid, Contico International.
Rubbermaid has been declared a winner in a patent infringement case involving the design of its ActionPacker storage container. Rubbermaid brought the suit against Contico International after that company began selling its Fast Pak in January, 1991, two years after Rubbermaid's introduction of the ActionPacker. The ruling found in favor of Rubbermaid on all counts of patent, trademark and trade dress infringement, and enjoined Contico from making, using, selling or soliciting for sale its Fast Pak container, models 1326 and 1826. Contico has also been forbidden to market products having the latch design of its Fast Pak and Work Bin products.
