Asetek has announced that they have now received a payment of $600K as a result of their Patent Infringement lawsuit against Cooler Master International.
 
This comes after the US Court of Appeals upheld previous rulings that Cooler Master infringed on Asetek's patents, banning the sale of certain items and forcing Cooler Master to pay a 14.5% royalty on infringing sales since 2012. The original ruling was issued in December 2014, with Cooler Master failing to pay any damages or injunction fees until the appeals process was finished.    
 
Now Cooler Master has paid their damages to Asetek with interest, bringing this long-running court battle to a close. Sloth Eriksen, the founder and CEO of Asetek has this to say;
 
 
 
  This award signifies another successful defence of Asetek’s intellectual property,
As part of efforts to build and maintain market share, we closely review and assess all competitive offerings for infringement of our patents. We are pleased with our success in defending them.

Since this court case has taken place, Cooler Master has significantly redesigned their liquid cooling lineup to remove and trace of Asetek patent-infringing technologies, giving them what can be today be considered some of the most unique AIO liquid cooler designs on the market.    

Asetek currently makes products for a wide range of cooling applications, from the server market all the way to consumer desktop PC, offering their OEM designs to Corsair, NZXT, Antec, and many other cooler manufacturers.

So if some one stole something from you you'd make them a cup of tea, pat them on the back and send them on their way?

Yuh, right.Quote

I never said they were wrong? I was merely pointing out they are stating the obvious because they are constantly in the news for suing or something negative.
And to answer your question, last time someone tried stealing for me(a brand new bike), I beat the crap out of him and his friends along with my best friend. So no, I wouldn't make a cup of tea for them, I don't even like teaQuote

What Asetek are doing is the legal version of assault. Probably the same route NBD would take if he were in their shoes.

Surprised Caselabs have not taken on Thermaltake tbh.Quote
