Endonovo Therapeutics Files Lawsuit against KVP International Inc., Orthocor Medical Inc., and Careus Corp. for Patent Infringement
LOS ANGELES, CA, Feb. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Endonovo Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: ENDV) ("Endonovo" or the "Company"), a commercial-stage developer of non-invasive Electroceutical™ therapeutic devices, filed a patent infringement lawsuit today in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against KVP INTERNATIONAL, INC., a California Corporation, ORTHOCOR MEDICAL, INC., a Delaware Corporation, and CAERUS CORP., a Minnesota Corporation.
The lawsuit states the aforementioned companies make, market, import, use, sell, and/or offer for sale several products and related services within the United States which infringe Endonovo’s Patents.
[The lawsuit includes patent infringement against KVP International Inc. KVP makes, markets, uses, sells and offers for sale a product it refers to as its KVP Cura line, including, but not limited to the KVP Cura Patch. KVP has even trademarked the KVP Cura name it uses to refer to its infringing products and/or product line The KVP Cura line infringes, where according to KVP’s own website, “the KVP Cura line reduces pain and increases blood flow, providing effective therapy for a variety of ailments. Using PEMF technology, KVP Cura increases metabolism, blood flow, and lymphatic flow by accelerating the exchange of positive and negative ions through the cell membranes of an animal’s body.” Thus, the product line includes PEMF technology used for treating various ailments in exactly the same way as intended by the Endonovo Patents.The KVP Cura line includes a “KVP Cura Patch which attaches with Velcro for use with a wide variety of garments” according to KVP’s own website, where the Patch itself contains the PEMF technology. The Patch itself infringes certain claims of the Endonovo Patents, and can also be combined with a variety of therapeutic devices, where the combination infringes Endonovo’s patents. By instructing and/or encouraging a consumer and/or other user to combine or otherwise use a product in a particular way, KVP also indirectly infringes upon method claims within Endonovo’s Patents.]
[Endonovo is informed and believes, and on such basis alleges, KVP sought a trademark on its Cura name in October of 2017, and thus on or around this same time it also began marketing, manufacturing, utilizing, selling and offering for sale the relevant infringing products and product line.]
[Additionally, the lawsuit includes patent infringement against Orthocor Medical Inc. Orthocor is a supplier of critical components and parts to KVP, for use in KVP’s own infringing products and product line, for the ultimate sale and offers for sale of those products. Orthocor derives substantial profits, revenue and/or income from its sale of these parts and components to KVP.]
[Caerus Corp. also derives substantial profits, revenue and/or income from the sale of Orthocor’s infringing products as well as its own infringing products and product line. This includes direct sales as well as indirect sales through its own distributors and/or retailers that knowingly distribute or sell products to consumers and/or businesses.]
