ResMed Inc. said the Munich District Court ruled in its favor in a patent infringement case against Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Corp. Ltd.
The German court found that ResMed's AirSense 10, AirCurve 10, Lumis and its humidifiers do not infringe Fisher & Paykel's patent for a German utility model.
Previously, the same German court said Fisher & Paykel's Simplus, Eson and Eson 2 masks infringe on ResMed's patents. However, it suspended two patent proceedings involving the two companies pending the result of invalidation proceedings.
ResMed intends to continue the patent challenge against Fisher & Paykel's German utility model before the German Patent and Trademark Office.
The company said the German ruling has no effect on their patent infringement cases against Fisher & Paykel in other jurisdictions.
