Oh! What a good news! It happens in India too! Seems our police have come off age! If so, congratulations. Please keep it up. Will the police please publish the payment receipts of the challans paid by the culprits in this case for the 'benefit' of others? Because, as is known, our 'police nets' are very conveniently designed to facilitate escape of big and bigger fish, even after going to court!

Tata Consultancy slapped with $940-mn fine by US court
New York/Mumbai: India's top IT company Tata Consultancy Services has been slapped with a $940-million fine, including punitive damages of $700 million, by the US Federal Court in the State of Wisconsin for allegedly stealing software information.
 
Besides the punitive damages, the US Federal Court of the Western District of Wisconsin has asked the company, and its US arm, Tata America International Corp, to pay $240 million to Epic Systems Corp for "ripping off" its healthcare-related software.
 
The verdict came after the case was heard for around two weeks in Courtroom 250 of Judge William M. Conley, based on the lawsuit filed by Epic Systems of Verona -- a major company in electronic health records -- on October 31, 2014 in the US District Court at Wisconsin capital Madison.
 
The 39-page complaint alleged that Tata workers, hired as consultants to help a client, Kaiser Permanente in Oregon, to use its software, downloaded 6,477 documents accounting for 1,687 unique files from Epic's computers inappropriately, including those on its proprietary software.
 
The complainant further said a Tata employee had tipped off Epic about this activity and that the Indian company's leadership in the US and India were aware of the development that had commenced in 2012.
 
A TCS official in Mumbai said the company will respond to queries soon.
 
Epic claimed that the defendant company used the documents and related information to identify features of its software to accelerate the development of a rival product called Med Mantra. The court then asked Epic to prove in what manner Tata Consultancy would have benefited from that information.
 
The US company alleged that when confronted by Kaiser Permanente regarding the downloading of Epic data, the TCS staffer initially denied such an act. But later the said employee changed his story and admitted that he had provided his Epic access to two other colleagues.
 
The lawsuit also alleged the Indian company has engaged in an "elaborate campaign of deception to steal documents, confidential information, trade secrets, and other information and data," with the purpose of utilising technical expertise developed after years of hard work and investment. 
 
"TCS’s misconduct appears designed to allow TCS and perhaps other Tata entities to unfairly compete with Epic in the marketplace. The unlawful conduct of TCS and potentially other Tata entities must be stopped and an appropriate remedy fashioned for the benefit of Epic," the lawsuit said.

Free wi-fi at nine more railway stations
New Delhi : Indian Railways internet service arm Railtel and internet giant Google on Friday launched free high-speed public wi-fi service at nine railway stations across India.
 
"After the first launch at Mumbai Central, starting today (Friday), users in Pune, Bhubaneshwar, Bhopal, Ranchi, Raipur, Vijayawada, Kacheguda (Hyderabad), Ernakulum Junction (Kochi) and Vishakhapatnam will be able to access the network using their smartphones for free," said a joint statement.
 
"Travellers passing through these stations will now be able to easily stream a high definition video while they are waiting, research their destination, download a book or a new game for their journey," it added.
 
The service built over Railtel's fibre network will be formally launched by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu soon.
 
In association with Indian Railways and Railtel, Google aims to spread the high speed wi-fi service across 100 of India's busiest railway stations by the end of 2016 to enable 10 million people access internet, and eventually spread the scheme to 400 stations.
 
"As internet adoption grows in India, easy and affordable access to high-speed networks is the real need of the hour. But our real hope is that this project will set new benchmarks," said Google's Gulzar Azad while Railtel chairman R.K. Bahuguna said the long term goal of the wi-fi service is to make it self-sustainable.
 
"And while the service will be free for a reasonable amount of time, our long-term goal is to make this project self-sustainable to allow for expansion to more stations and places in the future," he said.
