Sarine wins Indian court case on copyright infringement
Israel-based diamond technology business Sarine Technologies has won its India court case against five diamond businesses in industry hub Surat. The businesses were found to have illegally used pirated versions of Sarine’s ‘Advisor®’ rough planning software for diamonds.
“We are encouraged by the swift and decisive action taken by the Indian court,” said Sarine’s CEO David Block, the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council reported on its website. “The court’s ruling has made it clear that any company using unlicensed or pirated Advisor® software is breaking the law. We intend to aggressively protect our IP and will continue taking action against any entities involved in infringement.”
Sarine had filed a lawsuit against the Surat diamond businesses and this was followed by official, court-ordered raids of those business’ premises. The court found that the businesses were guilty of copyright infringement and noted that it made a swift decision due to the conclusive evidence the raids had uncovered.
The businesses which the court found guilty were Gopi Impex, Nirghay Impex, Pramukh Gems, Dhiren Diamonds, and Bhumika Gems. These businesses were ordered to immediately remove the pirated software from their computers.
Sarine Technologies Limited is a publicly traded company that develops, produces, and sells technologies for the diamond industry. The business’ technologies focus on the planning, analysis, and grading of rough and polished diamonds and its headquarters are located in Hod Hasharon in Israel.
