NEW ORLEANS – An Abita Springs man who creates casino software says a competitor allegedly stole copies of his product, obtaining his intellectual property and proprietary information.
Glenn Golden, doing business as G2 Database Marketing, filed a lawsuit July 9 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Clear Advantage Marketing and affiliated entities, Mark McKamey; Tim Bollmann; Harry Carstensen; Wild Rose Entertainment LLP; Wild Rose Clinton LLC; Clinton LLC; Wild Rose Emmentsburg LLC; DuBuque Racing Association, doing business as Mystique Casino; and Does 1 to 50; alleging copyright violations and unfair business practices.
The plaintiff creates database marketing software that captures and analyzes gaming data generated from electronic casino games. The software is sold with upfront payment for licensing fees or by monthly subscription. According to the complaint, Clear Advantage obtained Golden’s proprietary technologies from a pirated copy of his software provided by employees of a client, Wild Rose. McKamey, Bollmann and Carstensen are former employees of Wild Rose and currently work at Clear Advantage.
Golden seeks compensatory, exemplary and punitive damages in excess of $1 million. He is represented by Philip A. Dominique of The Dominique Law Firm LLC and David A. Oriol of David A. Oriol LLC, both in Madisonville.
