Beyond the expected

CSIRO Wireless Boffins face patent backlash

By johnboy - 18 May 2005 3

The One James has sent in a link to an ABC story on the CSIRO’s new legal war against some of the world’s biggest IT companies over CSIRO wireless networking patents.

Wireless networking is deeply un-nerving stuff until you’re used to it, and then you wonder how you ever lived without it. I’m typing this on a laptop completely unwired.

In any event for years these comapnies have paid CSIRO and now they’ve decided they’ve had enough.

RiotACT’s spiritual parent, Slashdot, have a discussion going here.

What’s Your opinion?

I think the legal equivalent of a clever Crow to a Cane Toads kidney is more appropriate. Turning their own vital organ of business back against them so to speak 😉

I hope CSIRO crushes these companies with the legal equivalent of a golf club to a cane toad.

I like it when the term ‘hypocrisy’ is dealt to an organisation that by the very definition of its existence, is only there to further itself beyond the concerns of others.

Cause it brings to mind the term ‘moron’.
