Wi-Lan Sues Big Name Companies Over Wi-Fi Patent Issues

Wi-Lan Inc, a Canadian technology licensing company, seems to be feeling rather brave, as it has filed a lawsuit accusing a good number of big name companies on the market of patent infringement. The company has targeted the likes of Apple, Gateway, Toshiba, HP and Intel, accusing them of violating three patents which deal primarily with Wi-Fi technology and power saving technology for DSL products. The company said in a statement that it wants the defendants to sign licensing agreements with Wi-Lan for the rights to use its technology. In case you were wondering, the three patents are patent numbers 5,282,222, RE37802 and 5,956,323.
