Shimano wins patent infringement case againt SRAM

Hyperglide has bested Powerglide. The case was decided in Shimano's favour last week at a district court in Munich. SRAM can no longer market its Powerglide II brand cassettes (sold under the 5.0 and 7.0 trademarks) in Germany, even if SRAM exercises its right to appeal the decision because Shimano intends to secure a deposit to enforce its patent rights.
