Puritan Further Vindicated as Copan Loses Again in German Patent Proceedings

Puritan is pleased to announce that the German Patent and Trademark Office (GPTO) has handed Puritan and its customers a win in cancellation proceedings initiated on Puritan’s behalf against Copan’s utility model DE 20 2004 021 932 U1 (DE’932). Specifically, in DE File No. 20 2004 021 932.8, the GPTO has declared DE’932 invalid for its entire term, effectively erasing the patent as if it never existed. This means Copan may not base any claims on any alleged infringement of DE’932.
