Rambler drops effort for criminal case against Nginx
Russia’s Rambler Group said it will stop trying to have a criminal case brought against web server Nginx, which was developed by former Rambler employees.
Last week, Nginx’s offices in Moscow were searched following a complaint by Lynwood Investments, a company acting on behalf of Rambler.
Rambler said that it owned the rights to Nginx, as the service was developed by two employees of the firm at the time: Igor Sysoev and Maxim Konovalov.
The board said in a statement after the meeting that it had asked Rambler’s management team to request Russian law enforcement agencies cease pursuit of the criminal case, and begin talks with Nginx and with F5, a U.S. firm that bought Nginx in March for $670 million, Reuters reported.
