BrainLAB prevails in Medtronic patent fight

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

German company BrainLAB has won its appeal against an earlier court decision, which found that the Munich-based firm infringed four patents held or licensed by Medtronic. A US district court in Denver this week overturned the September 2005 verdict, ruling that BrainLAB's image-guided surgery/radiotherapy products did not infringe any of the patents and that there was not enough evidence to determine otherwise.
