Neptune Technologies files for revokation of Aker's Australian patents

Neptune Technologies and Bioressources announces that it has filed for the revocation of all of Aker Biomarine ASA's Australian patents before the Federal Court. More specifically, Neptune is seeking a declaration that all the claims in Aker's patents, namely the standard patent No. 2008231570 and the innovation patents Nos. 2012101332, 2012101333, 2012101334 and are, and at all materials times have been, invalid. The Aker Patents claim a krill oil composition and methods of extraction that lack novelty and are not patentable inventions. Neptune marketed its NKO krill oil product many years before Aker filed for these patents in Australia.
