Software Company Settles $50 Million Lawsuit with U.S. Army

The Dallas Morning News reports” “What do you do as a small software firm in Irving when you discover your biggest client has illegally installed your software on thousands of unlicensed workstations around the world?”

“If you’re Apptricity Corp., an 80-employee firm that sells enterprise logistics software, what you do is file a federal lawsuit claiming copyright infringement and hope like heck the client won’t get mad enough to drop you — even if that client is the U.S. Army and the suit seeks a quarter of a billion dollars.”

“That gamble has paid off for the Irving firm, which will announce Monday that the Army has settled its case and paid $50 million — and kept in place its working relationship with the company.”
