Fresenius, Cronut, Malibu Media: Intellectual Property

July 3 (Bloomberg) -- Fresenius Medical Care AG won a U.S. appeals court ruling that will end a patent-infringement claim brought against it by Baxter International Inc. over kidney dialysis machines in 2003.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office canceled the Baxter patent after a review while the civil suit was still pending, so there is no longer any basis for Baxter’s claim, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington ruled yesterday. The opinion was posted on the court’s website.
