The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium Sues Suzhou Gstarsoft Co. Ltd

December 3, 2019 — PORTLAND, OREGON — CAD software-maker The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) filed suit today against Chinese company Suzhou Gstarsoft Co., Ltd. (Gstar) alleging copyright infringement and trade secret misappropriation. In a separate lawsuit, the United States District Court for the District of Oregon ordered Gstar to participate in an audit of its software and to pay the ITC over $250,000. Thus far, Gstar has failed to comply with the court order. This new lawsuit is for Gstar’s apparent infringement of the ITC’s intellectual property and seeks to enjoin Gstar from using and licensing Gstar products improperly based on IntelliCAD.

ITC President David Lorenzo stated, “ITC members have invested millions of dollars and hundreds of man years in IntelliCAD which Gstar evidently has wrongfully appropriated. Gstar’s refusal to comply with the U.S. District Court order leaves the ITC no choice but to take further action to protect its intellectual property.”
