CSIRO wins WiFi case in ED Texas

US Federal Court of the Eastern District of Texas granted summary judgment in favor of the CSIRO's patent. Judge Davis also granted summary judgment that the defendant, Buffalo Technology, had infringed CSIRO's patent.

Previously, Microsoft, Dell, Hewlett Packard, Intel and Netgear had taken legal action against the CSIRO in an attempt to break its US patents for wireless LANS, including elements of the 802.11a/g Wi-Fi technology that has since become an industry standard, and CSIRO still faces major hurdles in California with two separate cases taken against it by Intel and Dell, and Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard and Netgear a year ago.
