Synopsys filed its lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in 2013, alleging that ATopTech copied elements of PrimeTime's command set into its Aprisa product, thereby violating Synopsys copyrights. The court ruled that the command set elements were protected by copyright, which had been disputed by ATopTech. In March of 2016, a jury found that ATopTech infringed Synopsys' copyrights and awarded Synopsys $30.4 million in damages.
