EVE Will Continue to Defend Against Patent Infringement Suits from Mentor Graphics
News Release from:
21 August 2012
EVE today denied any wrongdoing and reaffirmed that it will continue to defend itself against Mentor Graphics' patent infringement suits. EVE believes these litigations are unfounded will defend itself through the United States and Japanese court systems until the truth is established.
“Mentor Graphics’ behavior is predictable,” said Luc Burgun, president and chief executive officer of EVE. “In 2006, Mentor Graphics tried to use the legal system to stifle competition when it was struggling to deliver Veloce and had concerns about EVE accelerating deployment through a line of successful products. This is yet another groundless litigation and we will vigorously defend ourselves.”
