The Patent infringement law suit, Case No.13-60136-CIV-MIDDLEBROOKS/BRANNON, filed by Odorstar Technology LLC and Kinpak lnc. – a wholly owned subsidiary of Ocean Bio-Chem, was first filed on Jan. 18, 2013 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, alleging Biocide System’s CLO2-DMG Technology™ was infringing on their NosGuard™ US Patent number 6,764661 .

On Jan.27, 2014 after considering the arguments by both sides and the evidence presented the Court found that Biocide Systems was entitled to a judgment in its favor on all claims, as the accused product did not infringe on any of Odorstar’s patent claims.

On February 22, 2014 a notice of appeal was filed, Case No.14-1417, by the plaintiffs to the US Federal Court of Appeals in Washington D.C.

On January 6, 2015 a hearing took place on Case No.14-1417, in US Federal Court of Appeals where oral arguments from legal council on both sides were heard by a panel of Judges.

On January 8, 2015 the US Federal Court of Appeals affirmed the prior judgment and a complete validation of the District court of Florida’s earlier decision on all claims, therefore a per curiam judgment was given granting Biocide Systems a complete victory.

“As an entrepreneur, it bothers me to think of how many potential good companies with important contributions and hard working people behind them, go by the wayside. All because they don’t have the wherewithal to endure these type of legal challenges”, said Juan Carlos Baselli, Biocide Systems C.E.O.

“We knew we would prevail as our Chlorine Dioxide delivery system technology is far superior to anything on the market. Fortunately for us we had a stellar legal team in Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP, headed up by senior lead council and partner Ed Pennington and Associate Sean T.C. Phelan”, said Spencer Blua, Biocide Systems C.F.O.

While the lawsuit was working its way through the court system, Biocide Systems stayed the course of business and continued to bring on invaluable clients in the Automotive and RV channels with their Bio-Shocker™ line of branded Chlorine Dioxide or ClO2 based products.
