RFID World takes on Wal-Mart in ED Texas

from RFID Journal:

RFID World has filed suit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, which reportedly finds in favor of the plaintiff 88 percent of the time, compared to 68 percent nationwide. The original complaint reads: "Wal-Mart, on information and belief, uses an inventory-control system utilizing the RFID technology claimed in [Bormaster's patent]. By utilizing such systems, Wal-Mart has in the past and continues to infringe at least claim 1 of the patent."


"Because RFID technology has not only become cheaper to obtain, but is being required by both the private and government sectors, lawsuits like the RFID World suit will probably become more common in the near future."
