In the last year or so, we've been seeing a lot of companies come up with random patents that they claim are violated by various WiFi implementations. One of the holders of such patents is the Australian government science organization CSIRO, who recently sued a Japanese owned firm in the US for violating those patents. That's scared a bunch of big US firms who have decided to take action. Microsoft, Dell, HP, Intel, Apple and Netgear have all teamed up to try to invalidate the patent. Note again the incredibly involved (and expensive) process to prove that a patent never should have been granted in the first place. And people wonder why the patent system needs to be reformed?
