Bangalore City Court Restrains Pearson Education from Using or Referring to Any Outputs from Kaleido

The Bangalore City Court has restrained Pearson's Indian arm from using or referring to any outputs from Kaleido, a patent pending student assessment and analytics platform by New Rubric. Pearson has been restrained from infringing on New Rubric's intellectual property 'in any way'. New Rubric had approached the court in June alleging that Pearson had plagiarised the analysis generated by Kaleido, with evidence from a YouTube video, where a Pearson director was presenting content copied verbatim from Kaleido last October. The company did not seek monetary compensation, however, the case can be appealed in the High Court. Pearson has been no stranger to controversy and lawsuits. In April, it was sued, along with Apple, by the Los Angeles School District (for the $1.3 billion program) to pay for software which Pearson created and was supposed to be implemented on Apple's iPads. However, reports claim that Pearson's software was not ready before the project started and it had only supplied samples for the same.
