The timing of this lawsuit is interesting as it seems that XPrime waited to sue DATAllegro and founder Stuart Frost until after Microsoft announced its plan to acquire the company***. The complaint was filed yesterday in U.S. District Court in San Diego filed by Cary A. Jardin, the founder of XPrime, he claimed that DATAllegro CEO Stuart Frost used his access privileges while he was at XPrime in 2003 to steal information about technology that Jardin was then in the process of patenting. The patent titled "System and Method for Generating and Processing Results Data in a Distributed System," was granted to Jardin on February 13, 2007.

ComputerWorld reports that:

According to the suit, Frost "attempted to convert Jardin's inventions to his own by filing with the USPTO patent applications in the distributed database architecture field the same subject matter as Jardin's intellectual property." Moreover, the suit alleges that Frost "used and incorporated Jardin's intellectual property into Datallegro's products," adding that the unauthorized use of the technology "continues to this day."

Stuart Frost has responded to the filing here at BeyeBlogs.com on the DATAllegro blog.

***According to Benjamin Romano at the Seattle Times the attorney for Jardin stated "Because of the severity of the apparent infringement, the issue was raised as soon as possible after thoroughly investigating the matter."

A couple other perspectives on the story can be found here:

I am just finishing Charlene Li's Groundswell. Charlene was most recently Vice President and Principal Analyst with Forrester Research and is a well respected authority on social media. The book draws on real world examples of how companies are winning in a world transformed by social technologies..

For executives looking to get insight and solid business examples this is a great read. I like the fact that Charlene isn't fanatic about the power of social media she understands the need to examine your audience and craft a strategy that fits its needs. She and writing partner Josh Bernoff designed a tools you can use to profile your customers social media behaviors.
