The patent infringement case alleges Cloud Magnet has continued to actively and publicly promote its products which we believe infringe Metrasens’ patents granted in China, including in particular, the promotion and offer to sell these products at an exhibition in Shanghai. Consequently, Metrasens has filed a new patent infringement case with the Shanghai Intellectual Property Court on 5 August 2019 (Case Re: (2019) Hu 73 ZhiMin Chu No. 599). We trust Shanghai Intellectual Property Court, as one of the specialized intellectual property courts in China, will render a decision according to the laws. In order to avoid parallel trials, we are going to combine the infringement asserted at the Nanjing into the case to be tried by the specialist Shanghai Intellectual Property Court and withdraw the patent infringement case with the Nanjing Court.
Metrasens greatly values the relationships that it has developed with the Chinese radiology community through its adoption of Ferroguard MRI safety systems over the past six years. Similarly, it greatly respects the development within China of new technologies to advance the goal of making MRI facilities as safe as possible for all patients and staff. However, Metrasens values its intellectual property rights and will continue to take all necessary legal and commercial steps to protect its proprietary technology and patents.
