Richter wins suit against Vietnamese companies

Pharmaceuticals company Richter Gedeon Rt won a competition lawsuit against two Vietnamese companies it accused of copying one of its drugs, business daily Világgazdaság reported citing company spokeswoman Zsuzsa Beke.

Richter won $46,000 in compensation from Bipharco and Trung Nam, which illegally sold copies of Richter's Postinor 2 birth control tablet. The verdict sets a precedent in Vietnam as similar past rulings only awarded foreign companies several hundred dollars in damages, Beke said.
According to Világgazdaság, Richter is planning to file suit against other companies in Southeast Asia for copying the same drug.
