Fenwick & West Successfully Represents Industrial Evolution in Copyright Infringement Case

March 12, 2002

Fenwick represented Industrial Evolution in an action for copyright infringement when it was discovered that a software developer had created a competing product based on code developed and paid for by Industrial Evolution. The court granted Industrial Evolution’s request for expedited discovery and set Industrial Evolution’s motion for a preliminary injunction for an evidentiary hearing. After multiple depositions, including of the parties’ CEOs, extensive written discovery, and a substantial document production on 15-day expedited basis, the case settled with a significant payment to Industrial Evolution.

The Fenwick litigation team was led by Rodger Cole and Kate Fritz.
