Arista Wins in Copyright Case Versus Cisco

A U.S. jury in the Northern District of California has found that Arista is not liable for copyright infringement related to Arista’s use of a small number of commands similar to those found in Cisco’s Command Line Interface (CLI), and does not owe damages to Cisco.


“We would like to thank the jurors and Judge Freeman for their tireless efforts. Today’s verdict represents an important victory not only for Arista but for the entire industry,” said Marc Taxay, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Arista.

In the statement, Chandler said Cisco is prepared to bring an enforcement action if Arista violates the ban and continues to sell or support infringing products. http://blogs.cisco.com/news/protecting-innovation-facing-the-facts Cisco...
