  OSIsoft Seeks Legal Resolution with Matrikon

22 October 2003: In an email today, OSIsoft informed it's customer base that it has filed a lawsuit against Matrikon, Inc. (Matrikon).

OSIsoft has claimed that the lawsuit was on the grounds of Matrikon violating their partnership agreement by selling various OSIsoft software components to end users without their knowledge or consent and misappropriated OSIsoft's trade secrets.

OSIsoft also claimed that Matrikon's unauthorized software distribution has ranged from PI software libraries all the way up to entire PI Systems. OSIsoft is seeking damages to recover the value of this software and to stop future infringement of their intellectual property rights.

OSIsoft is appealing to their user community that currently uses Matrikon software to contact their local OSIsoft sales representative to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
