BMC to Actively Defend against Curative in Patent Fight
BEIJING, July 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — On June 24th, 2014, BMC Medical Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "BMC") received a complaint submitted to the Suzhou Intermediate People’s Court by Curative Medical Technology (Suzhou) Inc. (hereinafter referred to as "Curative"). Curative accused BMC of violating its patent ZL200610080596.6. (sound-absorbing mechanism and the Positive Airway Pressure device that adopts this mechanism).
After receiving the complaint, BMC took active measures to deal with Curative’s lawsuit and consulted YUHONG Intellectual Property Law Firm (hereinafter referred to as "YUHONG") on the patent in dispute. After carrying out comprehensive research and analysis, YUHONG concludes that the stability of the patent right of No. ZL200610080596.6 has serious problems. According to Article 47 of the Patent Law of the PRC, "any patent right that has been declared invalid shall be deemed to be non-existent from the beginning." At present, the Chinese Patent Re-examination Board has accepted BMC’s invalidity application against the patent at issue. Meanwhile, BMC has hired a professional team of patent lawyers to respond to, and cope with, this lawsuit so as to protect the company’s legitimate rights.
As China’s leading provider of home-use sleep therapy devices and services, BMC adheres to the mission of efficient product research and development as well as constant technology innovation, quality improvement, and cost reduction.
