SAN FRANCISCO –
A Palo Atlo company is being sued over allegations that it knowingly infringed copyrighted software and updates owned by a Redwood City company.
Oracle America Inc. and Oracle International Corp.
filed a complaint on March 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
against Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. and Does 1-50, citing alleged copyright infringement and unfair competition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages to their business as a result of unauthorized copies of their software being distributed by the defendants. The plaintiff holds Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. and Does 1-50 responsible because the defendants allegedly distributed unauthorized copies of plaintiffs' exclusive software and did not take any steps from restricting their partners from distributing said software.
The plaintiffs seek the following: preliminary and permanent injunction restraining the defendants from copying, distributing Oracle's software; return plaintiffs' property; order to destroy all infringing materials; all damages; all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just and proper. They are represented by Christopher S. Yates, Christopher B. Campbell and Meaghan P. Thomas-Kennedy of Latham & Watkins LLP in San Francisco, Dorian Daley and Deborah K. Miller of Oracle Corp. in Redwood City and Jeffrey S. Ross of Oracle Corp. in Burlington, Massachusetts.
