A Delhi, India, high court has stopped an Indian firm from using the name Siebel on its software or training and marketing materials, after lawyers acting for U.S. e-business solutions company Siebel Systems Inc. made allegations of copyright and trademark infringement. The court ruled that United Systems Infotech must cease using the word Siebel on its software and accompanying training courses. United Systems Infotech, which provides software training courses for technologies such as ERP, e-CRM, and CAD/CAM, has said that it will fight the injunction and the allegations of copyright infringement.
