Attorneys successfully defended a claim for copyright infringement in a trial i before a 3 member panel of the American Arbitration Association

Attorneys successfully defended a claim for copyright infringement in a trial i before a 3 member panel of the American Arbitration Association. Our client, a non-profit corporation, provides online application forms for students to use in applying to its member colleges and universities. The claimant, our client’s former technology vendor, alleged that when our client awarded a software contract to a new technology vendor, our client (along with its new vendor) unlawfully accessed, copied and used claimant’s intellectual property in developing a new software program. In addition to copyright infringement, claimant alleged misappropriation of trade secrets, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and various state law claims. After a 2 week trial over the summer, with 5 different experts and numerous fact witnesses, and extensive briefing afterwards, the AAA panel recently issued a lengthy opinion denying all of the claims against our client. Additionally, the panel found for our client on its affirmative claim seeking the return of all of its student application data in a format that could be understood and interpreted.
