License Property
'PRODUCTS' shall mean ophthalmic medical devices used in the treatment of presbyopia, hyperopia, ocular hypertension and glaucoma, the manufacture, use or sale of which, would, but for this Agreement, constitute or would result in an infringement of the Patent Rights in any country including, but not limited to, the products set forth in the attached SCHEDULE B and any enhancements or improvements thereto.

Licensor's primary products are the patented PresVIEW device and the related PresVIEW Incision System, the automated surgical instrument for the surgical treatment of Presbyopia, Ocular Hypertension and Primary Open Angle Glaucoma, or POA Glaucoma, in the human eye.

The PresVIEW device consists of four separate tiny plastic segments, each about the size of a grain of rice, made from polymethylacrylate, or PMMA. PMMA has been implanted in the eye for other types of surgical procedures (intraocular lenses, hard contact lenses) for over fifty years. The surgeon uses the PresVIEW Incision System to make four superficial incisions in the quadrants of the sclera (white of the eye). The PresVIEW device is inserted into the superficial tunnels, causing a lift in the sclera that in turn reduces the crowding of the underlying muscles.

The full royalty rate schedule has not been made public, the only publicly available rate is a know-how royalty rate for countries where a relevant patent has expired.

Field of Use
The rights granted apply to the human eye.

License Grant
A Judgement by the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts in Boston has issued an initial decision in the case of  U.S. Patent No. 6,410,516 , is valid and infringed by licensee's sale of Evista(R) and Xigris(R).  

This case was tried before a jury in the U.S. District Court from April 10, 2006 through April 28, 2006. After deliberations, on May 4, 2006, the jury rendered a verdict in favor of the Plaintiffs by finding that the NF-kB ‘516 Claims asserted in the lawsuit are valid and infringed by Lilly through sales of Evista and Xigris in the United States.  One defense regarding validity was not submitted to the jury and was instead the subject of a bench trial, as addressed below. The jury awarded damages to the Plaintiffs in the amount of approximately $65.2 million, based on the jury’s determination of a reasonable royalty rate of 2.3% to be paid by Lilly to the Plaintiffs based on U.S. sales of Evista and Xigris from the date of the filing of the lawsuit on June 25, 2002 through February 28, 2006. The jury awarded further damages on an ongoing basis, in amounts to be determined, equal to 2.3% of U.S. sales of Evista and Xigris through the year 2019, when the patent expires. If the verdict is upheld, damages paid by Lilly will be applied first to reimburse us for any unreimbursed legal fees and expenses relating to the litigation. We will receive 91% of the remainder, and the co-plaintiffs will receive 9%.

The dispute involved licensor's U.S. patent covering methods of treating disease by regulating NF-kappa B cell-signaling activity, and jurors awarded damages to licensor and its co-plaintiffs.  Licensee plans first to ask the judge to set aside the jury's verdict regarding Evista and Xigris and then to appeal, if necessary.

Field of Use

License Grant
The Company announced today that it received a ruling from the U.S. District Court in regards to ongoing royalty rates for Phase I of its patent litigation with Plaintiff. As previously announced, Phase 2 surrounding the cervical plates involved in the dispute was settled.
License Property
On August 17, 2012, Plaintiff filed additional patent claims in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana alleging that the Company various spinal implants (including its CoRoent® XL family of spinal implants) infringe U.S. Patent No. 8,021,430, and that the Company's Osteocel® Plus bone graft product infringes U.S. Patent No. 5,676,146 C2. On August 28, 2012, Plaintiff amended its complaint in the Northern District of Indiana alleging that NuVasive's XLIF® procedure and use of MaXcess IV retractor during the XLIF procedure infringe methodology claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,251,997.
Field of Use
The CoRoent XL is a family of spinal implants used to replace weakened or damaged intervertebral discs. These discs act as the spine’s shock absorber allowing forces to be distributed evenly during the body’s movements.

And MaXcess instruments provide access to the spine in a manner that affords direct visualization and our nerve monitoring systems assist surgeons in avoiding critical nerves.  Our MaXcess system consists of instrumentation and specialized implants that provide maximum access to the spine with minimal soft tissue disruption. MaXcess has a split blade design consisting of three blades that can be positioned to build the surgical exposure in the shape and size specific to the surgical requirements rather than the fixed tube design of other minimally invasive surgical systems. MaXcess’ split blade design also provides expanded access to the spine, which allows surgeons to perform surgical procedures using instruments that are similar to those used in open procedures but with a significantly smaller incision. The ability to use familiar instruments reduces the learning curve and facilitates the adoption of our products. Our system’s illumination of the operative corridor aids in providing surgeons with direct visualization of the patient’s anatomy, without the need for additional technology or other special equipment.
