Verdict Awaits In SAS Copyright Lawsuit

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

World Programming Ltd. (WP), a tiny UK-based company, describes it as a David-vs.-Goliath battle against a software monopolist.

At stake is millions, if not tens of millions, in software license revenue.

The lawsuit, filed by SAS in the High Court in London, alleges that WP "used the SAS Learning Edition product for purposes of developing, testing and benchmarking its WPS software in breach of the terms of the SAS Learning Edition Licensing Agreement,” stated John Boswell, vice president and general counsel at SAS, in a November 2009 press release.
