Beatz is back!!


Cogzidel’s successful product Beatz is back after fighting legal battle from itz competitor who claimed we stole their code. We collected lots of evidence to prove our hard intellectual work where in we have spent a lot of time & money for this product.

Here is an update of what has happened 

  • On 20th of May our competitor got a Stay Order from Madras High Court claiming we have stolen there code and launched it as Beatz.
  • A temporary injunction was given till 10th June.
  •  We received a notice from competitor’s attorney on 23rd May and we brought down Beatz the same day.
  • Then we collected all evidence proving our credentials for next one week.
  • We were unable to act as Madras High Court was on summer vacation till 8th June.
  • Then sent a counter to our competitor’s attorney’s for all their allegations.
  • We were expecting them to bring the case on 10th June the day injunction expires. But they didn’t open the case and automatically the injunction got broken.
  • We took a week to fix all the bugs reported by clients and today we Re-launched Beatz.

Still I’m waiting for the judgment copy to reach me after which I’ll post all the evidence we collected as a separate blog.

I must thank all our esteemed clients for their valuable support, our staff who worked day and night to collect all the evidence to prove our credentials, my attorney’s particularly my attorney friend Mr.Samson and my family who stood with me.

Shocking news about Beatz


Last weekend was full of drama. We were shocked to get a legal notice from our competitor where they have got an injunction (stay order) from Madras High Court to stop offering Beatz for download. So, what is the reason they have claimed for this?

 

  • They say we have stolen their code and we are offering the product for free. This was fully false & baseless allegation. We spent almost 3 months to develop this wonderful product.
  • Also they claim offering freebies is against competition laws. But we have used Joomla as the framework for the development of this product and we feel by using an open source it is only ethical to offer the product for free.

 


Also what disappoints me is;

 

  • All of a sudden we get an injunction order and we were not given a chance or prior notice to prove our point of view.
  • Also they have timed this at a time where courts are on a vacation and we have to wait till courts reopen.

 

I take this opportunity to inform my customers, employees and friends that this product is genuinely developed by Cogzidel’s team and we will prove our credentials as soon as the courts reopen.

 

For people who have downloaded the script before 23 May 2009 can use the script because we received the injunction only on 23rd May. There is absolutely no issues with this because we have enough evidence to prove that we have developed this product.

 

At this point I must thank my team members (Senthil, Sathick, Bala Krishnan, Boopathi and Major Karthik) who are my support and strength. They gave me the motivation and energy I needed.

 

Also I once again take this opportunity to thank customers and employees for their support.

 

If you want to help us you can do that by offering valid legal points, writing blogs, by tweeting on twitter, making forum posts against these kinds of unhealthy business practice and you can use any other legitimate ways which can help us get support of the community.
