Now Wi-Lan Sues Everyone Over Bluetooth Patents
from the what's-next? dept
Remember Wi-Lan? The failed Canadian company reinvented itself as a patent nuisance, claiming that WiFi violated its patents, leading to it suing a bunch of companies all at once. That strategy seems to be working, so now its claiming that Bluetooth also violates Wi-Lan patents and has sued another 19 companies for infringement. The list includes Apple, Dell, Intel, HP and others. And, of course, the lawsuit was filed in East Texas — and Wi-Lan is claiming willful infringement, demanding treble damages. Same story, different day.
