Neptune Files a Second Patent Infringement Suit Against Competitors Aker, Enzymotec, and Others

Neptune Technologies & Bioresources, Inc. announced that it has filed a second patent infringement lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware alleging infringement of its recently issued continuation patent against Aker BioMarine ASA, Aker Biomarine Antarctic AS, Aker Biomarine Antarctic USA, Inc., Schiff Nutritional International and Schiff Nutrition Group, Inc. Neptune has also filed a separate infringement action against Enzymotec, Ltd., Enzymotec USA, Inc., and Mercola.com Health Resources, LLC. Neptune's continuation patent, US 8,278,351 ("the '351 Patent"), contains claims to krill extracts comprising phospholipids bonded to EPA and/or DHA which are suitable for human consumption. These new claims cover all of Neptune's products, including the successful NKO(R) brand, as well as many of the Defendants' products. This new patent was granted after a thorough examination by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, including consideration of the papers from the re-examination requests filed by Aker Biomarine ASA regarding Neptune patents related to the '351 patent. In addition to seeking monetary damages for Defendants' infringement of the '351 Patent, Neptune is also requesting injunctive relief to prevent the Defendants from continuing to infringe Neptune's patent.
