re: EDA vendor sues China's ZTE, alleges software piracy

There are definitely huge software piracy happening out in the world. Most of the times the big companies are able to settle these cases without any courts since the smaller companies involved in such piracy afraid to be dragged to court and pay huge fines. AWR would have already tried enough to settle it without going to court, but for some reason ZTE doesn't seem to be much worried about these allegations. Will be very interesting to see what happens ahead!!!

I strongly support AWR's right to defend it's EDA software from being used without a license. ZTE should be made to pay for the full retail value of each stolen license, plus extra compensation for brazenly cheating. ZTE should be embarrassed and should pay dearly for theft.

It is interesting to me that AWR is attempting to protect their IP in China .. by filing a copyright infringement complaint in California. I'm not a lawyer but I assume that the goal here is more to try to embarrass ZTE rather than to collect any license fees or damages? I guess we will see how it plays out.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
