CSIRO shuts down Buffalo WLAN shipments

Popular wireless router manufacturer Buffalo Technologies appears to have raised the hackles of Australia's National science agency - the CSIRO. Buffalo Technologies has allegedly infringed upon wireless network technology developed by the CSIRO.

Last Friday, a federal court in Texas granted Australia's national science agency, CSIRO, an injunction to prevent infringement of its wireless network patent by Buffalo-group companies in the US. The injunction prevents the sales of all wireless LAN products by Buffalo until a license for CSIRO technology is negotiated.CSIRO had begun a test case against the Buffalo companies in February 2005 in Texas, after the industry had failed to accept CSIRO’s offers to license its wireless local area network (WLAN) patents on reasonable and nondiscriminatory (RAND) terms.
