Courts once again reject Dyson's complaint against Vax.
The Court of Appeal have ordered Dyson to pay rival Vax's costs, totaling almost £200k, after ruling that the Mach Zen vacuum cleaner has its own, individual design.
President of International Floorcare and Vax Managing Director Simon Lawson made this statement to the press: "I am proud of our UK based Design and Innovation team - performance is everything - and in the Mach Zen they have created a vacuum cleaner that is quieter and more powerful than any other multi-cyclonic cylinder on the market."
