Magnitude Information Systems, Inc. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Niche Software LTD, manufacturers of WorkPace software, for willful infringement of Magnitude’s ErgoEnterprise product line.
The lawsuit comes after Magnitude’s attempts to license its ErgoEnterprise software to Niche. “Although we would have preferred to resolve this dispute without litigation, we can no longer tolerate Niche’s on-going infringement of our patent,” said Steven D. Rudnik, Magnitude Founder, and Chief Executive Officer in a Magnitude press statement. “Niche’s infringement is clear. We have a responsibility to our shareholders, our customers and the industry in general to expose and to end this patent infringement.”
