Synopsys Obtains Injunction in Copyright Suit Against ATopTech

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 21, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced that a California Federal District Court has issued a permanent injunction against ATopTech and in favor of Synopsys. The injunction prohibits ATopTech from developing, using, selling, offering to sell, licensing or distributing any product containing PrimeTime report formats or certain PrimeTime non-SDC commands, variables or attributes. The injunction also prohibits ATopTech's support of such products after March 2017.

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. In March of 2016, a jury found that ATopTech infringed Synopsys' copyrights and awarded Synopsys $30.4 million in damages.
