SANS - Survey on application security programs

Inprise/Borland has filed a lawsuit against Iona alleging that Iona has engaged in "a pattern of wrongful conduct", that it has "wrongly solicited" employees, diluted the trademark, interfered with customers, libelled the company by spreading misinformation about its products and services, and engaged in unfair competition. The suit was filed in the California Superior Court against Iona Technologies Inc, and its Irish parent Iona Technologies PLC. Inprise CEO Dale Fuller said he regretted the necessity of having to do this, but he had a fiduciary responsibility to protect the interests of shareholders. There was no reference to Corel in the announcement. Inprise acquired VisiBroker when Del Yocam was in charge, and competes with Iona in the ORB market. Yocam filed suit against Microsoft when it was found that Borland engineers were being lured from the company by very large sign-on fees. Microsoft settled the case but the terms have not been made public. ®
