ResMed: German Court Concludes Fisher Infringes Two ResMed European Patents

ResMed (RMD) announced updates in ongoing global patent infringement litigation with Fisher & Paykel. The company said, in Germany, the court concluded that Fisher & Paykel's Simplus, Eson and Eson 2 each infringe two ResMed European patents. The court stayed the infringement proceedings to permit ResMed to defend the validity of its patents in the European Patent Office.

In the United Kingdom, ResMed is proceeding to trial in defense of one of three UK ResMed patents that Fisher & Paykel has challenged, while agreeing to revoke the other two UK patents.

The company said, in Australia, after ResMed presented its evidence defending a key ResMed mask patent, Fisher & Paykel immediately withdrew its validity challenge to the patent. In New Zealand, ResMed's case against Fisher & Paykel for patent infringement is moving forward to a trial in late 2018.
