WiLAN Sues Apple Over Wireless Patents

Whoa, we almost made it all the way through the week without an Apple lawsuit. Whew, that was close! big grin

Patent 5,282,222 is especially interesting because of how long it's been around and how broad it is. The patent was filed for in 1992, and issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in 1994. According to an abstract on the patent, it relates to "a method for allowing a number of wireless transceivers to exchange information (data, voice or video) with each other."
