Another week, another lawsuit.
CSC has sued TCS for “improperly accessing and using CSC’s confidential, proprietary and trade secret information and source code to develop Defendants’ competing software product.”
I am sure TCS will respond in the court, so I won’t comment on the merits of the case.
But in general terms, I think we do have some problem with respect to “not thinking twice” about intellectual property of others. This disregard for IP starts really early. Schools and colleges don’t think it’s a bad idea to let kids use pirated software. Some even encourage it. Even big brands copy designs with impunity and there are several instances of music piracy in Bollywood.
