Calyx Software, San Jose, Calif., has decided to drop its request for an injunction against Ellie Mae, Dublin, Calif.Calyx has sued Ellie Mae, alleging that the company committed copyright infringement by copying the look and feel of its Point product with the release of Encompass. To ensure that Ellie Mae doesn't sell Encompass until the case is decided, Calyx petitioned the court for an injunction. Calyx now says it was unable to get a proper discovery period and has therefore dropped the request until discovery can be conducted, at which time it reserves the right to reinstate the request. On the other side, Ellie Mae chief executive Sig Anderman called the entire request "frivolous." Mr. Anderman maintained that Calyx withdrew its request because Ellie Mae was going to ask the court to impose sanctions on Calyx should the court decide in Ellie Mae's favor. The first hearing in the copyright infringement case is scheduled for late this month.
