SEOUL, South Korea, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The District Court Dusseldorf has dismissed patent infringement claims against Medit Corp. ("Medit") – a global provider of 3D scanning solutions – by competitor 3Shape A/S ("3Shape").
The subject-matter of the proceedings was the alleged indirect infringement of 3Shape's European Patent EP 2 400 919 B1 concerning a computer-implemented method for designing a post & core. Scanning for post & core is possible with the support of Medit's i500 intraoral scanner, T-Series lab scanners, and their respective software.
3Shape may appeal against the decision but Medit believes that it will prevail in any future proceedings. Furthermore, Medit has also filed a nullity suit against the patent with the Federal Patent Court in Germany. This suit is still pending.
"Medit will continue to support our customers with their journey into digital dentistry. We develop all software in-house and our R&D department is always available for discussions and to resolve any potential misunderstandings," says GB Ko, CEO of Medit.
