ResMed files new claim against 3B Medical

Friday, April 15, 2016

SAN DIEGO – ResMed has filed new legal action with the United States International Trade Commission seeking to stop what it claims is patent infringement by Chinese manufacturer BMC Medical and its U.S. distributor 3B Medical. ResMed claims that two of the manufacturer’s flow generators, the RESmart and Luna, infringe on two claims of ResMed’s patent. In response, 3B issued a press release stating that ResMed’s filing of another patent case is an attempt to “stifle legitimate and fair competition.” 3B also pointed out that, most recently, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued a series of judgments declaring certain patent claims by ResMed as invalid.
