Uniview Beats Intel In Trademark Lawsuit

By Charles Rollet, Published Aug 19, 2019, 08:49am EDT

Uniview has won a long-running trademark lawsuit brought by Intel, with Beijing's highest court reversing an earlier Intel win, centered on Uniview's "IMOS Inside" platform, which Intel said ripped off its famous "Intel Inside" brand.

uniview beats intel

Uniview made highly nationalistic statements about the case, even publishing a letter to President Trump claiming that Intel was unfairly monopolizing the word "inside" just like the USA unfairly monopolizes the words "democracy" and "freedom."

However, Uniview denied to IPVM that US-China tensions influenced the case's result, and denied this will harm its cooperation with Intel elsewhere. Intel said it was "disappointed" by the result but did not address the US-China aspect.

In this note, we take a closer look at the lawsuit and its broader implications, including:

  • What Is Imos Inside?
  • Intel loses, Intel wins and finally, Intel loses
  • Court Reasoning for Uniview Victory
  • Uniview's Letter to Trump criticizing Intel
  • Intel "Disappointed"
  • Uniview Response
  • Impact
