18:28 EDTORCLCourt finds Rimini Street infringed Oracle copyrights, stole IP
On August 14, the U.S. District Court in Las Vegas entered an order granting Oracle's motion for partial summary judgment in its case against Rimini Street, and its CEO, Seth Ravin. Oracle moved for summary judgment on Rimini's counterclaims for defamation and unfair competition. In those counterclaims, Rimini challenged Oracle's public statements that Rimini had engaged in massive theft of Oracle's intellectual property. The Court dismissed those counterclaims finding that Oracle's statements "that Rimini had engaged in 'massive theft' of Oracle's intellectual property are true." The Court explained that "It is undisputed that Rimini engaged in theft of Oracle's intellectual property." The Court also found that Rimini Street infringed Oracle's copyrights. In February, the Court found that Rimini Street infringed Oracle's PeopleSoft copyrights and that Oracle had proved prima facie copyright infringement as to its JD Edwards and Siebel copyrights. The Court ruled that Rimini Street also infringed Oracle Database copyrights. The Court found that Rimini Street had downloaded 25 copies of Oracle's Database software and possessed over 200 copies of this software even though Rimini's downloading, possession, and use of this software all was unlicensed. The Court ordered the parties to submit a pre-trial order within sixty days.

08:04 EDTTIBXTIBCO holder Praesidium urges company to conduct formal sale process
Praesidium Investment Management, which beneficially owns approximately 5.4M shares of TIBCO Software, announced last night that it sent a letter to TIBCO's Board of Directors, in which it stated in part: "We were happy to read in the Wall Street Journal that TIBCO Software has started to reach out to potential acquirers. We support the Company's exploration of a potential sale as a way to maximize shareholder value. However, the article states that the talks are not part of a formal process and are being spearheaded by TIBCO's CEO, Vivek Ranadive. We strongly believe that a rigorous, formal process is required in order for the Board to make a fully informed decision in good faith regarding whether a sale, a stand-alone strategy or another alternative is in the best interests of the Company's shareholders. In order to avoid conflicts of interest, we think that it is imperative that the Board form a special committee of independent directors and that the special committee engage with an investment bank and legal advisors...We believe the Board has an opportunity to create a significant amount of value for shareholders through a formal and well run sales process. Praesidium, as a large, long-term TIBCO shareholder, would be more than willing to assist the special committee in pursuit of maximizing value for TIBCO shareholders. We intend to provide the Board our analysis and views on who we see as the potential strategic acquirers and how TIBCO's products would fit with each."
