It is also seeking an injunction against New Relic prohibiting the infringement of CA patents and the misuse of the company’s intellectual property. In other words, CA wants a judge to shut down New Relic. New Relic Founder and CEO Lew Cirne is at the heart of the lawsuit. In 2006, Cirne sold his Wiley Technologies to CA. As part of the agreement, Cirne gave up three patents that CA says Cirne is now using at New Relic. Wi (IT news)
