ITC confirms MVTec’s success in software patent dispute

MVTec Software has announced that the US International Trade Commission (ITC) has rendered a final determination in MVTec’s favour in the patent dispute raised by Cognex Corporation.

The ITC has confirmed in its final determination that MVTec does not infringe the patents asserted by Cognex and that those patents are invalid – meaning MVTec’s machine vision software HALCON will continue to be sold and imported into the USA.
