ResMed wins patent fight with Chinese firm

|About: ResMed Inc. (RMD)|By:, SA News Editor

An administrative law judge at the International Trade Commission (ITC) rules that nine products manufactured by Chinese medical device maker BMC Medical Co., Ltd., infringe on one or more ResMed (RMD -0.6%) patents. Judge Thomas Pender recommends that the ITC ban BMC and its U.S. distributor, 3B Medical, from importing or selling any of the infringing products in the United States. He also recommends issuing a cease-and-desist order that would enjoin BMC and 3B from selling, advertising, marketing, storing or testing the infringing products in the U.S.
