Oracle: Court Rules Rimini Street Infringe Oracle Copyrights - Quick Facts

Oracle Corp. (ORCL: Quote) said the Court ruled that Rimini Street infringed Oracle copyrights by installing PeopleSoft software on Rimini Street's computer systems in order to develop and test software updates for Rimini Street's customers. The Court rejected Rimini Street's defense that the copying was permitted by licenses held by Rimini Street's customers, the City of Flint and Pittsburgh Public Schools. Also, it rejected Rimini Street's defense that Oracle had granted Rimini Street an implied license and ordered that partial judgment be entered in Oracle's favor.

On February 13, 2014, the U.S. District Court in Las Vegas entered an order granting in part Oracle's motion for summary judgment in its case against Rimini Street, Inc. and its Chief Executive, Seth Ravin.

Oracle attorney, David Boies, noted, "As the Court's ruling explains, Rimini Street has used illegal and unlicensed copies of PeopleSoft software as the basis of its business. We look forward to holding Rimini Street and Seth Ravin accountable at trial for the damages caused by their misconduct." The Court reserved for trial issues on certain other software and customers, and a second motion by Oracle for summary judgment on other issues remains pending.
