Initially, it was designed solely as a rewrite of UBB, in PHP using My SQL, and was meant only for their own forum.
Other UBB owners expressed interest in the solution, and they offered to sell it to Infopop, but their proposal was rejected.
The lawsuit alleges "widespread infringement and unlawful exploitation" of v Bulletin's source code and "equally damaging misappropriation of trade secrets" developed and owned by v Bulletin with "investments of millions of dollars over the last ten years." The lawsuit further alleges that the developers of Xen Foro Ltd."took with them virtually every type of document a competitor would need to enter the market and unlawfully create a competing bulletin board software program." Since the initial release of the v Bulletin forum product in 2000, there have been many changes and improvements.
Architecturally, v Bulletin 4 follows MVC (model-view-controller) object oriented principles, allowing far greater capabilities in code re-use and extendability." At the time, the requirements of v Bulletin 4 were "PHP 5.2.3 and My SQL 5.0.22 or newer".
