Software Firm ABBYY Not Guilty in $265M Lawsuit

Russia based Software company ABBYY has won a lawsuit against the U.S. company Nuance, which was demanding $265 million in damages from ABBYY and a codefendant for infringement of patent rights.

"We are very pleased that the jury has ruled in our favor. Since 2008, when the lawsuit was filed, we were convinced that we were right. It's nice to know that our confidence was confirmed by the court," said Leigh Ann Weiland, vice president and chief counsel of ABBYY USA.

The lawsuit was initially filed by Nuance in 2008 against ABBYY and Lexmark. Nuance accused the defendants of violating the OCR patent rights.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
