Microsoft Files Piracy Suits:

October 11, 2000|Reuters

Computer software giant Microsoft Corp. sued three Atlanta-area firms that allegedly sold counterfeit versions of the company's Windows operating system and other products. The suits, filed in a federal court in Atlanta, accuse Quastar Computer International Inc. of Norcross, Ga., Streamline Data Systems of Alpharetta, Ga., and Tierra Computer of Doraville, Ga., of trademark and copyright violations. Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft said it is seeking undisclosed monetary damages and a court injunction barring the businesses from continuing to distribute alleged counterfeit Microsoft software. Quastar had no comment. Streamline and Tierra were not available. Microsoft closed off 38 cents at $54.56 on Nasdaq.
