Aqua Connect Sues Code Rebel, Alleging Reverse-Engineering Shenanigans


Aqua Connect, which provides Remote Desktop Services for Mac OS X, announced today that it has filed suit against Code Rebel.

In its complaint (filed in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, Aqua Connect basically alleges that Code Rebel has misappropriated Aqua Connect trade secrets, software and technologies since January, 2008.

Aqua Connect claims that on or around June of 2009, Code Rebel began distributing a product, iRAPP Terminal Server, which was the result of the reverse engineering of Aqua Connect Terminal Server.

“We have reason to believe that Code Rebel reversed engineered releases of Aqua Connect Terminal Server and packaged this as their own product,” said Renee Mehrian, EVP of Aqua Connect.

“This practice has caused many of our customers confusion, and for a majority of them, compromised the integrity of their servers’ security mechanisms. Our goal is to ensure that customers receive the highest quality version of Aqua Connect’s products as they were intended to be designed and released.”
