Introduction

We have learned that Siemens has filed another lawsuit in Texas for software piracy of their software products.  The case is 4:20-cv-00798.  The case was filed by Reed Smith LLP law firm from Texas.  Note that we have already seen people who are not located in Texas being sued.  This raises the opportunity to file a motion to dismiss in Texas to have the case against the Doe Defendant (sued only by an IP address) dismissed.  Every case is different so call us for a free consultation.  Currently, we see Siemens attacking engineers on two fronts:

1.  Enforcement cases through the California bay area law firm of Donahue Fitzgerald (non-litigation enforcement efforts)

2.  Filing copyright infringement lawsuits in Texas district court (as they have done many times in the past)

We are a leading technology law firm that has represented the bulk of defendants being sued in these actions.  We handle both types of cases and offer low (predictable) flat rate fees without the fear of high legal bills.  If you received a letter from your ISP (Comcast, Verizon, Sprint, Cox, Frontier, AT& T or other) call us for a free initial consultation.

Siemens defense attorney

Sample lawsuit allegations

Here are some sample allegations from the lawsuit.  If you received a subpoena for a BitTorrent download or Siemens lawsuit, call us for more information:

SISW manufactures and distributes Product Lifecycle Management (“PLM”) software, which allows companies to manage the entire lifecycle of a product efficiently and cost-effectively, from ideation, design and manufacture, through service and disposal. PLM software brings together computer-aided design (“CAD”), computer-aided manufacturing (“CAM”), computer-aided engineering (“CAE”), product data management (“PDM”) and digital manufacturing. By providing the application depth and breadth needed to digitally author, validate and manage the detailed product and process data, PLM supports innovation by its customers.

8. NX 7, NX 8, NX 9, NX 10, NX 11, NX 12, NX 1855, and NX 1867 (collectively “NX”) software are among the PLM software products offered by Plaintiff. NX software offers the industry's broadest suite of integrated, fully associative CAD/CAM/CAE applications.

NX touches the full range of development processes in product design, manufacturing and simulation, allowing companies to encourage the use of best practices by capturing and reusing product and process knowledge.

9. Star CCM software is another PLM product offered by Plaintiff. Star CCM is an advanced engineering simulation software program that offers a complete multiphysics solution for the simulation of products and designs that captures the physics that influences the real-world performance of products.

10. FloTHERM software is a PLM product offered by Plaintiff. FloTHERM is a design development software that allows users to predict the airflow and heat transfer in and around electronic equipment. FloTHERM, which can be closely integrated with mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) software, allows Plaintiff's customers to keep pace with design changes during product development.

11. SISW software, including NX, Star CCM, and FloTHERM, constitutes and contains SISW's valuable intellectual property that has been developed over many years through the investment of substantial resources. To protect its rights and interests in its valuable software, including but not limited to its NX and FloTHERM software, SISW obtains and registers copyrights to its works. 

The complaint seeks damages and an injunction and will also seek their attorney fees if they can prove copyright infringement and otherwise prevail on their action.
