Bricsys Membership in ITC has Been Terminated

Portland, OR., USA, February 10, 2010- The IntelliCAD Technology Consortium (ITC) announced today that the Bricsys membership in the ITC has been terminated and that it has received a letter from Bricsys CEO Erik de Keyser stating that the BricscadTM 10 source code does not contain any IntelliCAD® software.  Bricsys joined the ITC in 2002 (as BricsCad NV) and Mr. de Keyser served as Vice President of the ITC in 2003 and Chairman of the Board of the ITC from 2004 to 2006.

The ITC is a technical software consortium where member companies have access to the IntelliCAD source code. When a member company leaves the ITC, the member company follows an established procedure to ensure that the intellectual property of the ITC is protected. The ITC will be taking steps to ensure that its intellectual property has not been improperly used by Bricsys. The ITC has invested over 10 years in the development of IntelliCAD, and recently announced the Beta2 release of IntelliCAD 7, a significant upgrade of the IntelliCAD base source code.

There are over 40 ITC member companies that work together to create the IntelliCAD development platform and they have committed considerable resources to protect their property and rights and to ensure that the IntelliCAD source code is not used inappropriately for the creation of other products.
