CA Inc. wins software patent lawsuit
A federal court has ruled in favor of Islandia-based CA Inc. over a patent challenge, according to the company.
In 2002 Canadian software developer Simple.com threatened CA with a patent infringement suit over its Web-based software. But CA filed a pre-emptive federal complaint in 2004 seeking a declaration of "non-infringement and invalidity" to the claims.
CA, represented by Covington & Burling, said its victory "sends a clear message to those who would file patent claims against CA that it will vigorously protect its rights and seek appropriate legal remedies."
