Opus Screen Saver Recalled
SAN FRANCISCO - Delrina Corp., a Canadian software publisher famous for its "Opus n' Bill Screen Saver," must recall the software under an order by United States District Court Judge Eugene Lynch.
The offending products contain pirated images of Berkeley Systems' copyrighted and trademarked Flying Toaster display, the judge had ruled earlier.
He said Delrina was unfairly exploiting the Flying Toasters copyright in a directly competitive product and trading commercially on the popularity and appeal of Berkeley's best-selling After Dark screen saver display in promotional materials.
Delrina previously stated that a record 25,000 copies of its new software had been shipped but in a second hearing said that less than half that number had gone out.
