Orders Magma to Transfer Title of Fixed Timing Patents to Synopsys
"This ruling confirms what we've been saying all along. Magma has no ownership interest in any of the fixed timing inventions at the core of our claims in this case," said Brian Cabrera, Synopsys general counsel. "We look forward to proceeding with the balance of the case after the court issues its ruling in the ownership phase."
The ruling, which addresses Synopsys' December motion for preliminary injunction against Magma, ensures that Synopsys' ownership of the patents is officially reflected and protected during the current proceedings before the Patent and Trademark Office.
