Arista cleared of copyright infringement against Cisco

Thursday 15 December 2016 | 09:23 CET | News
Arista Networks has won a victory in its copyright infringement suit against Cisco Systems. The company said that a US jury in the Northern District of California found that Arista is not liable for copyright infringement for its use of a small number of commands similar to those found in Cisco's Command Line Interface (CLI). As a result, Arista owes no damages to Cisco. The jury also found that Arista did not infringe the single patent remaining in the case as well as Cisco's asserted copyrights in its user manuals.
