North Carolina Business Litigation Report

Women's Healthcare Associates, P.A. v. TSI Healthcare, Inc., March 3, 2008 (Tennille)(unpublished)

The Court overruled an objection to its mandatory jurisdiction in this case involving a software license agreement.  It held, in affirming Defendant's Notice of Designation of the case as one involving "intellectual property law," that:

Software licensing has become an integral part of economic life. Decisions concerning software licensing can have an impact beyond the confines of a particular case and development of a body of case law in this area of law will be beneficial to the bar and business. See Smart Online, Inc. v. OpenSite Technologies, Inc. 2003 NCBC 5 (N.C. Super. Ct. June 17, 2003).  For the forgoing reasons, Plaintiff’s Objection to Designation is OVERRULED.
