C.F. 33666-07-11 Unipharm Ltd. v. Sanofi

Israeli court, Judge Ofer Groskopf, ruled against Sanofi for unfairly deterring generic competition by unlawfully pursuing a patent application. The court accepted Unipharm’s contention that Sanofi mislead Israel’s Commissioner of Patents in pursuing its application and held that Sanofi’s conduct amounted to misuse of rights and an abuse of dominant position that justify restitution of Sanofi’s profits during the 15 months of competition deterrence.
