San Jose, California-based color fax software maker Compressant Inc upset Hayes Microcomputer Products Inc recently by claiming that the modem maker was set to bundle Compressant’s software in with its Practical Peripheral and Cardinal brand modem, replacing its own Message Center software line. Hayes denied the agreement existed. Compressent later amended its announcement, saying that, although it had originally negotiated a software licensing agreement with Hayes, it was later directed by Hayes to work with one of its OEMs, The Media Farm Inc, presumably in an attempt by Hayes to distance itself from the proceedings. Hayes insists it remains committed to the Message Center software, and has no plans to replace it.
