• Mosaid gets into WiFi patent game by suing RIM amongst 16 other companies

    http://cdn.blackberryos.com/bbos-ima...logies-1wb.gif
    Mosaid late Wednesday sued as many technology firms as possible in hopes of profiting off the success of Wi-Fi. The Ottawa-based company's complaint targeted major device makers such as ASUS, Canon, Dell, Intel, and RIM as well as those building chipsets, such as Atheros and Marvell, for allegedly infringing six patents covering Wi-Fi, including network finding and the orthogonal multiplexing used for the faster speeds in the newer 802.11n spec. CEO John Lindgren insisted that "all" devices using Wi-Fi were dependent on the patents and had to pay royalties.

    The lawsuit asks all the companies to pay damages. It would further ban them from selling virtually any of the chipsets, notebooks, and phones they make or else would require a mandatory royalty from them to keep using what's allegedly Mosaid's technology.
