Melexis wins court case vs. austriamicrosystems

Melexis wins the patent nullity court case vs. austriamicrosystems at the Munich Federal Patent Court.
On December 9, 2010, the Federal Patent Court in Munich, the only competent German Court for judging patent validity, rendered its verdict on the patent nullity case initiated by Melexis in March 2009 against the austriamicrosystems patent EP0916074.

In 1st instance, the Court declared all attacked patent claims (1-3 and 5-14) as null and invalid based on the prior art submitted by Melexis. This decision can be appealed at the Federal Supreme Court (Karlsruhe).

The invalidation of all relevant claims of the austriamicrosystems patent takes away the basis for the earlier judgment in the parallel patent infringement case judged in Düsseldorf on May 10 (1st instance) and against which Melexis has lodged an appeal with the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf.
