Given Imaging Ltd.

Sep 2012
Given Imaging Ltd.’s patent infringement lawsuit against Intromedic Co. Ltd. of Seoul, South Korea, has been upheld by the Intellectual Property Tribunal of the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO). Given Imaging of Yokneam, Israel, alleges that Intromedic’s capsule endoscope, marketed under the brand name MiroCam, has infringed two of its Korean patents. In response to the accusation, Intromedic brought proceedings before KIPO to invalidate the two patents asserted by Given Imaging. KIPO’s decision rejects Intromedic’s invalidity arguments and cripples one of its main defenses against Given Imaging’s patent infringement action. The decisions may be appealed by Intromedic.
