Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) December 22, 2014
Eli Attia, considered one of the world’s foremost experts in designing high-rise towers, has sued Google, Flux Factory Inc., and the founders and top executives of both companies for alleged misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract, slander of title, unfair competition and fraud. Attia, partnered with technology firm Max Sound Corporation (OTCQB: MAXD), filed the complaint (Case: 114CV274103) in Santa Clara County Superior Court earlier this month.
The complaint stems from the intellectual property behind a technology solution designed to shorten and make significantly cheaper the design and construction process while reducing global carbon footprints and increasing housing availability.
Flux Factory began life in 2012 as one of the earliest Google X ideas. According to a company release, the firm exists to develop technology that helps architects and builders design houses and offices more efficiently, while meeting rising demand for new structures to hold families and workers. In May, Flux raised $8 million in funding to address technology solutions that improve inadequate building design, antiquated technology and poor construction quality.
Lawyers with the Dallas firm Buether Joe & Carpenter assert that Flux is founded on intellectual property stolen from New York architect Eli Attia, and Max Sound that bought the authority to enforce Attia’s intellectual property rights.
During the course of the companies working together, Google estimated that engineered architecture has a $120 billion potential annual revenue. Attia and Max Sound are suing for compensation.
John Blaisure, CEO of Max Sound Corp. says, "We are absolutely committed to safeguarding and protecting our valuable IP assets."
