Facebook fails to have data centre lawsuit ‘thrown out’


800px-3D_Judges_GavelFacebook has failed to have a lawsuit claiming that it ‘stole’ data centre intellectual property from two British companies thrown out of court. BladeRoom and Bripco allege that Facebook led them to “reveal their data centre designs and construction methods with promises of acquisition and partnership, only to then copy those designs and methods and pass them off as their own.”

The companies claim that the technology was passed off by Facebook as its own and effectively ‘open-sourced’ when it gifted it to the Open Compute Project.
