Unilin, Valinge Cooperate on Label Program
Dallas, TX, Nov. 29, 2012 – Unilin and Välinge have announced that they will cooperate on the holographic L2C label program, which was introduced at Domotex Shanghai 2012 and has already been implemented by several manufacturers.
The L2C label program, which stands for “license to clic”, was introduced to support the interest of licensed companies and the companies doing business in products manufactured by these companies.
Unilin and Välinge said they received many complaints from licensed manufacturers, importers, and distributors that certain manufacturers of licensed products did not comply with the contractual obligations.
The companies said the non-complying manufacturers seriously damaged the competitiveness of the manufacturers of the companies that were honoring their contractual commitments.
In order to stop the unfair competition and prevent patent infringements, it was decided to introduce this numerically controlled identification label program, by which certain manufacturers of licensed products are asked to attach a unique numbered holographic label to its boxes of licensed products.
Products without labels will be considered as unlicensed products.
