Jury Finds in Favor of Synopsys in ATopTech Copyright Infringement Case

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 10, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced that a federal court jury has found that ATopTech infringed Synopsys' copyrights associated with its PrimeTime® static timing analysis suite. In addition, the jury awarded Synopsys $30.4 million in damages. 

Synopsys filed its lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in 2013, alleging that ATopTech copied elements of PrimeTime's command set into its Aprisa product, thereby violating Synopsys copyrights. The court ruled that the command set elements were protected by copyright, which had been disputed by ATopTech.
