GlaxoSmithKline Files Lawsuit against Tibco Software Inc for Violating Federal Copyright Law

GlaxoSmithKline filed lawsuit in the federal court in Raleigh against Tibco Software Inc. for violating federal copyright law by selling a custom software package that was allegedly created in partnership with GSK. Tibco Software Inc. has been profiting off a software product the two companies developed together, the rights of which GSK allegedly owns. The software at issue was allegedly designed to use GSK's proprietary information to more effectively monitor certain risks associated with clinical trials. GSK's complaint says the London-based pharmaceutical company hired Tibco to work as a computer consultant in 2010. GSK's North American headquarters is in Research Triangle Park about two years later, the complaint says, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency began looking for more efficient ways to monitor clinical drug trials. Among the methods considered by the two agencies was to focus on risk-based monitoring (RBM) as opposed to more traditional on-site monitoring of trials. The RBM approach focuses on critical study parameters and relies on a combination of monitoring activities to oversee a study effectively. According to the complaint, GSK began the process of developing a software program that would serve as an RBM tool in 2012. GSK allegedly turned to Tibco to help develop the customized tool, which the complaint says was based on Tibco's Spotfire software product but which also factored in GSK's proprietary information. Throughout 2013, the complaint says, GSK and Tibco worked together closely on developing the customized software, and later that year, Tibco delivered the product to GSK. The complaint alleges the program was developed ‘in conjunction with GSK using GSK designs, specifications and proprietary and confidential information’. GSK allegedly paid Tibco approximately $500,000 under a contract that GSK argues gave it exclusive rights to all intellectual property developed by Tibco based on GSK's confidential information. However, according to the complaint, Tibco soon began selling a product that GSK says was identical in key ways to the custom software the two companies allegedly developed together. GSK's lawsuit accuses Tibco of copyright infringement and of breaching an information technology master services agreement. GSK is seeking a court order barring Tibco from continuing to sell any products that infringe on GSK's alleged intellectual property rights. GSK is also seeking an unspecified amount of monetary damages.
