The lawsuit, filed in the Tel Aviv District Court against Waze, its founders Ehud Shabtai, Amir Shinar, Gili Shinar and Uri Levine, and a Google subsidiary in Israel, claims that Waze is based partly on the work of a programming community, which is entitled to half of the company's intellectual property at the time of its sale. It also claims that Waze broke a commitment to leave its program, maps and information open to the public.
