Surat Court directs Rudra Diam to purchase legal Advisor® workstations.
Hod Hasharon (Israel), November 23: Surat may be the largest diamond cutting and polishing center in the world using state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, but few black sheep are tarnishing the image of the industry globally.
In yet another case of infringement, Sarine Technologies Limited, the world leader in advanced diamond technologies, has won the lawsuit filed against Surat-based Rudra Diam for the infringement of Sarine’s copyrighted Advisor® diamond planning software here on Monday.
Sarine Technologies Ltd a worldwide leader in the development, manufacturing, marketing, and sale of precision technology products and services for the evaluation, planning, processing, measurement, grading, and trading of diamonds and gems, had filed a lawsuit in Surat’s district and sessions court against Rudra Diam for infringement of Sarine’s copyrighted Advisor® diamond planning software.
The Surat court issued an injunction against Rudra Diam, permanently prohibiting the company from ever using ‘infringing or pirated versions of Sarine’s advisor software and computer program in any manner whatsoever.
The Court directed Rudra Diam to purchase valid and legal Advisor® workstations from Sarine instead of any pirated versions currently use.
David Block, Chief Executive Officer of Sarine said, “This is an important step in Sarine’s ongoing efforts to protect its valuable intellectual property. We are committed to enforcing Sarine’s rights and protecting its enormous investment against any attempts by other parties to produce and/or use infringing products. We intend to leverage this judicial result and follow through with similar lawsuits against other users of pirated/infringing software.”
