Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation v. Buffalo Technology Inc., 492 F.Supp.2d 600 (E.D. Tex. 2007) (full-text).
Trial Court Proceedings Edit
The court found that infringement of CSIRO’s patent on a wireless local area network had caused irreparable harm by depriving CSIRO of licensing revenues that would have funded additional projects and diverting funds from its research function to patent litigation. The court also noted harm to CSIRO’s reputation as a research institution and its ability to recruit top scientists.
