Trademarks of Remicade & Remsima not confusing

The Patent Court ruled that Celltrion didn’t infringe Janssen Korea’s right on its trademark for Remicade, sources said on August 24.

Janssen Korea appealed to the Patent Court immediately after the Intellectual Property Tribunal sided with Celltrion. The court seems that the trademarks of Remicade and Remsima are not confusing when the both are displayed at the same time.

Remsima sales were 3 billion won last year. Remicade sales dropped a little to 28.2 billion won in 2013.

Remsima has been approved for marketing in Europe and already marketed in developing countries. Celltrion’s partner company applied for marketing approval of Remsima in the U.S.

Janssen filed lawsuits to protect its trademark of Remicade in Canada, Republic of South Africa, Philippines, and India.
