ResMed battles Taiwanese outfit in apnea device patent fight

ResMed alleges that a Taiwanese manufacturer and its U.S. distributor are infringing on its patents for sleep-disordered breathing devices, and is seeking recourse in two separate legal actions. The San Diego company is pursuing its case against APEX Medical and its U.S. distributor Medical Depot (known as Drive Medical Design and Manufacturing). In its filing with the International Trade Commission, ResMed wants to stop both U.S. importation and sale of the affected products. A lawsuit filed in U.S. federal court seeks to stop the alleged patent infringement and also demands payment of damages. Release
