4DD Holdings, LLC v. The United States of AmericaTrial counsel for 4DD Holdings, LLC—a Virginia-based and veteran-owned developer of complex data federation software—in a case in the Court of Federal Claims against the United States Government for alleged violation of a software copyright license agreement. This case represented one of the largest software copyright infringement actions against the Government. 4DD asserted that the Government infringed 4DD’s copyright by copying its proprietary software program, TETRA® Healthcare Federator, on servers and other computing devices associated with tens of thousands of unauthorized processor cores in express breach of its license. 4DD successfully obtained sanctions award of almost $1.2 million in fees against the Government for destroying evidence. In April of 2022, the Court partially granted 4DD’s summary judgment motion, holding that 4DD has a valid copyright in its software and that the end-user license agreement prohibited the defendant from installing certain unauthorized copies or “cores” of its software. The Court also denied the Government’s summary judgment motion in its entirety. In November of 2022, 4DD’s claims were heard at trial before the Court of Federal Claims. In August 2023, after post-trial briefing and closing arguments, the Court awarded 4DD an 8-figure damages award.
