Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Following hard on the heels of recent success in the courts against unscrupulous software pirates Novell is now letting its lawyers loose on a New York company accused of copyright infringement false advertising and dilution of trademarks, among other claims. The lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, alleges that Computer Add-Ons reproduced and used Novell's trademarks and logos in violation of Novell's rights. The suit also alleges that Computer Add-Ons tampered with the packaging of Novell software to make it appear that upgrade software was original software and that the company then sold the tampered product to unsuspecting customers that were not eligible for upgrades. Novell was recently awarded $25.9 million damages by a court in Utah after reseller Network Trade Center (NTC) was found guilty of pirating its software. It was also recently awarded more than $800,000.00 by an Atlanta court in its case against Galactech, Inc. which was found guilty of selling counterfeit copies of Novell’s NetWare server operating system.
