Trimega continued

The Trimega saga, reported on Afro-IP by Darren earlier this week, has now been resolved. The report in Business Day, available at http://www.businessday.co.za/articles/Content.aspx?id=90870, does not give much clarity on the legal issues involved, apart from saying that the IP concerned belonged to Trimega, not the local firm with which it had a co-operation agreement. Judge Burton Fourie, in the Western Cape High Court, confirmed an interim interdict preventing the local firm, Real World Diagnostics, from using the relevant IP. Real World says it will appeal the decision.
For the rest of us, the instant breathalysers that would have made drink-driving more easy to police, appear to have taken a back seat.
