Cellebrite, provider of mobile forensic solutions, has announced that it has filed a copyright infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets, trademark infringement, and unfair competition action against Micro Systemation AB, a Swedish company, and its wholly owned subsidiary, MSAB, Inc. (collectively, “Micro Systemation”), in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

The Complaint alleges, among other things, that Micro Systemation unlawfully extracted Cellebrite’s copyrighted software and trade secrets from Cellebrite’s UFED products, reverse engineered, modified, and then integrated Cellebrite’s copyrighted software and trade secrets directly into Micro Systemation’s XRY software.

“We have made significant investments in developing our cutting edge technology solutions,” says Ron Serber, Co-Chief Executive Officer at Cellebrite. “We had no alternative but to take legal action to protect our intellectual property so we can continue to invest in the innovation required to serve the needs of the mobile forensic community going forward.”
