BLAUVELT, N.Y., Oct. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The maker of MidNite® Sleep Remedy, a patented, natural sleep aid with a proprietary formula, has succeeded in protecting the brand against patent infringement by a store-brand manufacturer, according to the company president, Holly Rosenthal. Under the terms of the agreement reached between Concepts In Health, Inc., maker of MidNite Sleep Remedy, and Contract Pharmacal (CPC), a contract manufacturer who was manufacturing CVS Natural Sleep Aid, a private label version of the patented MidNite product, CPC agreed to discontinue manufacturing and selling CVS Natural Sleep Aid or any substantially similar product. Additionally, CPC will not challenge the validity or enforceability of the MidNite patent (US Patent 6,703,412).
"We are deeply gratified by the outcome of this settlement," says Rosenthal, who is also founder of Concepts In Health. "We believe it provides validation for America's patent system and reinforces some of this country's most deeply held values -- innovation and entrepreneurship. We will continue to vigorously protect our intellectual property at whatever cost."
Under the terms of the agreement, CPC did not admit liability for infringement of, or, to the validity or enforceability of the '412 patent. Financial and other terms of the settlement remain confidential.
