Adobe vs SSI ruling

February 1998 ruling in the case of Adobe versus Southern Software Inc, Paul King's company. Adobe and The Learning Company (TLC, formerly SoftKey) announced a settlement in Adobe's lawsuit. Adobe had in fact sued TLC for infringement of software copyright and design patent related to TLC's licensing of font software from Southern Software (SSi). TLC settled for 2 million US dollars, plus the withdrawal of the company's font CDs (1555, 3003 and two other series).

Same text at AMSYS Hot News. Wired News. Link at Emigre. Adobe's take on the matter. Note that "the court grants Adobe's motion for summary judgment on its claim of copyright infringement of its Utopia software program," but "denies Adobe's motion for summary judgment on the patent claims". Ian N. Feinberg's interpretation of the result.
