In a recent decision, the Swedish Supreme Court has denied jurisdiction in respect of a claim for declaration of non-infringement of a Swedish patent against a Norwegian company. The article examines the decision in the light of the Brussels and Lugano Conventions, taking into account previous case law of the European Court of Justice. It arrives at the conclusion that there is no clearly fixed solution for the problems at hand, but that the relevant articles of the Conventions should be interpreted differently depending on the nature of the case.
