It's good to see that Australian Government research may finally get the rewards of inventing technology that is used by millions of people these days. The CSIRO however has yet to see a single cent from US companies using CSIRO patented technology without any licensing."THE CSIRO has won another round in its lengthy battle in the US to collect millions of dollars in royalties for its 1996-patented Wireless LAN technology. Last Friday, a US federal court granted the science agency's application for an injunction to stop the Buffalo group of companies from infringing the CSIRO patent in the US. The injunction prevents the sale of products using CSIRO-patented technology until a licence is negotiated.
