CA Technologies Wins Copyright Infringement and Trade Secret Action Against Australia-based Independent Systems Integrators

Federal Court of Australia Judge Expected to Issue Orders to Implement Decision

ISLANDIA, NY, and SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, March 21, 2012 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that the Federal Court of Australia has found Independent Systems Integrators (ISI) of Sydney, Australia violated copyright laws and breached its duty of confidentiality in developing and selling a product using intellectual property (IP) from CA Technologies CA Datacom relational database management system.


“We are pleased with the Court’s decision,” said Amy Fliegelman Olli, CA Technologies executive vice president and general counsel.  “CA Technologies will continue to vigorously protect its intellectual property and aggressively pursue any illegal use in order to protect the substantial investments we make in research and development.  Furthermore, we are committed to safeguarding the considerable investments and confidence our customers place in us when they purchase our products, solutions and services.” 
In the next phase of the decision process, the Federal Court of Australia is expected to issue orders necessary to implement its ruling. 

The Federal Court found that ISI infringed CA Technologies copyrights by using CA Datacom code to develop and implement its 2BDB2 product.  In addition, the Court further ruled that ISI violated its duty of confidentiality by using confidential information found in the Administrator and Programmer Guides provided to CA Datacom customers to develop the ISI 2BDB2 product.

The ISI case is the second major instance in the past three years where CA Technologies has successfully taken actions to protect its intellectual property. 

In February 2009, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, CA Technologies reached a settlement with Rocket Software, Inc. resolving the company’s claims of copyright infringement and trade secret misappropriation.  As part of the settlement, Rocket has agreed to license technology from CA Technologies, including source code authored several years ago and related trade secrets that were the subject of the litigation. Further terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
