E-cigarette makers get court victory on patent dispute

E-cigarettes have been touted as a healthier alternative to cigarettes for years, but the patent battle is heating up.

The E-Cigarette Industry Association has sued the Canadian company that makes the devices, claiming it infringes on their patents, claiming its new product could lead to a rise in addiction and even death.

The patent infringement claim was filed Monday in Ontario Superior Court, the second such lawsuit this year.

E-cigs are small battery-powered devices that emit nicotine-laced vapor into your lungs and then inhale it.

But they can be used to deliver nicotine-infused liquid to your mouth, which could lead them to develop a serious addiction to nicotine.

The lawsuit, which is expected to be filed in a matter of days, alleges the company, which sells to online retailers and online pharmacies, has failed to disclose the risks of using E-cig technology.

The company has also failed to explain how the device works, and failed to demonstrate the safety of the device.

The claim alleges that the device “is a new product, with no existing patents and therefore no competitive market for its use.”

It also argues that E-vapor products are unlikely to be safer than cigarettes because of their chemical makeup.

“The claimed safety and effectiveness of the claimed product is speculative and unproven, and there is no proven evidence that it has been proven safe and effective in humans,” the lawsuit states.

The case is a fight over patents in Canada, where E-Vapor products have been marketed since 2013.

Canada’s federal government is looking into whether E-products should be subject to the same regulatory requirements as tobacco products.

The new patent claim comes as Canada is grappling with the impact of an outbreak of the coronavirus.

The country reported a staggering 2,746 new cases of coronaviruses in June, compared to 2,100 the same month last year.
