The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) came to a settlement in the copyright infringement lawsuit against Oregon State University and Stephen Garets, operators of the Team Oregon Motorcycle Safety Program, according to an MSF press release.
MSF President Tim Buche stated, “We are pleased with the settlement in which the integrity of MSF’s intellectual property rights was acknowledged. It’s unfortunate that a lawsuit was necessary to reach a resolution of this dispute.”
MSF had offered to settle its intellectual property claims on substantially the same terms in October 2006 and resorted to the lawsuit after its offer was rejected without a counter offer.
