Mosaid Technologies, an intellectual property firm, has threatened to sue several companies for alleged infringement of six of its Wifi related patents.
Among the companies are RIM, AsusTek Computers Inc, Atheros Communications, CSR Inc, Dell, Huawei Technologies, and a few others.
According to Mosaid, the companies have infringed its patents by creating and selling products that comply with IEEE802.11 standard, known as Wifi.
John Lindgren, president and chief executive officer, Mosaid, said, “Since 2008, we have licensed our portfolio of wireless patents and applications to 15 companies that have recognised the value of this intellectual property.”
“We believe that all companies offering products that implement the Wifi standard require a license to our wireless patents,” added John.
Wifi is a wireless standard that helps connect devices within a safe network so that they can share data.
