Subject: Versata Case Settles


The OpenChain Group might be interested in this development:


Ximpleware filed announcement of settlements in both the copyright and the patent cases on February 10.  The dismissal of the copyright case is included. The dismissal of the patent case has not yet been filed. The settlement is expected since it is part of the litigation started by Versata against Ameriprise to terminate its license (no settlement has been announced in that case). For an overview, you can see my article at


XimpleWare v. Versata, Aurea Software Inc., Trilogy Development Group, Inc., Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., Ameriprise Financial, Inc., United HealthCare Services, Inc., Waddell & Reed, Inc., Aviva USA Corporation, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, Pacific Life Insurance Company, The Prudential Insurance Company of America, Inc. (subsequently dismissed against Prudential), Wellmark, Inc. (“Versata Defendants”) Case No. 5:13cv5161, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Jose).


XimpleWare has sued all defendants for direct patent infringement and declaratory relief and the Versata Defendants for contributory and inducement of patent infringement. 


XimpleWare v. Versata, Trilogy Development Group, Inc., Ameriprise Financial, Inc., Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., Aurea Software, Inc., Case No. 3:13cv5160, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California.


XimpleWare has sued the defendants for direct copyright infringement, unjust enrichment, unfair competition and declaratory relief and sued the Versata Defendants for contributory copyright infringement, violation of the Lanham Act, breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing and international interference with prospective economic advantage.
