Netsys sues Avanquest
Netsys has filed a lawsuit against Parallels Desktop German distributor Avanquest for copyright infringement, claiming that Parallels' software offerings are directly descended from its own line of products which Parallels was commissioned to help develop. Netsays claims that Parallels took the product it had developed on paid commission, enhanced it, and began distributing it separately, according to Virtual Strategy Magazine. Netsys previously filed a lawsuit in an "urgency proceeding" -- a court case with no way to hear arbitrary witnesses or experts. Netsys lost the case, which requested a temporary injunction from the Landgericht district court of Berlin. Netsys has filed a new suit, and this time the firm has requested afull trial to consult arbitrary witnesses and experts.
