ContextVision Receives Positive Ruling in Patent Litigation

Stockholm District Court ruling makes ContextVision the owner of a 2006 patent registered by Sapheneia

July 24, 2013 — The Stockholm District Court ruled ContextVision is the owner of a patent application filed by Sapheneia in September 2006. The patent application represents the underlying technology across multiple medical imaging modalities. ContextVision proved that the technology within the patent is a result of work the two filing inventors conducted during their time at ContextVision.

According to Swedish law, any invention or patent application filed within six months of employment belongs to the previous employer. In this case, Sapheneia registered the patent application five months after the inventors left ContextVision, making ContextVision the rightful owner of the application.

Sapheneia’s platform, “Clarity Server Solution,” relates to the technology included within the September 2006 patent application. Due to the court’s ruling, ContextVision now owns the patent application.

The main hearing was held in Stockholm, May 27-30, 2013. On July 12, 2013 the Stockholm District Court ruled in favor of ContextVision and declared that ContextVision owns the patent application. Sapheneia was ordered to pay ContextVision’s legal costs during this process, amounting to TSEK 2,940.
