Aircraft Medical: European Patent Hearing
Date:1/23/2008

Aircraft Medical's Success at European Patent Hearing is Confirmed by

Verathon's Appeal.

EDINBURGH, Scotland, January 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The European Patent Office (EPO) has found Verathon's European Patent (the '131' patent) not valid as granted. In a ruling on Oct 16, 2007, a narrower version of the patent was upheld. In a PR twist however, Verathon issued a press statement into wide distribution announcing the EPO ruling as a success, despite the fact that the ruling severely weakened its patent.

Verathon has now appealed the EPO's October 2007 ruling. This appeal very effectively demonstrates that the EPO decision was in fact not favourable to Verathon.

In a re-examination request raised by Aircraft, the U.S. Patent Office has so far declared that every claim in Verathon's issued US Patent 6,543,447 is invalid. Aircraft has also taken the opportunity to challenge the validity of Verathon's European Patent, and has already successfully narrowed it as a result of substantial prior art, and will make further invalidity submissions to the EPO in due course.

Matt McGrath, Aircraft Medical's CEO, was this month named "Young Scot of the Year" by the Institute of Contemporary Scotland, in recognition of the invention of t
