Well, not really. Just Dell, HP, HTC, Apple and more



You wanted more lawsuits? Well, your wish has been granted by the folks over at WiLAN. In November of last year the Canadian company brought it upon themselves to sue cable companys over broadcasting data to remote networks and computers. This time though, they’re taking on a whole bunch of big wigs who manufacture phones.

Engadget has reported that WiLAN lawyers have taken on Apple, Dell, HP, HTC, Kyocera, Novatel, Alcatel-Lucent and Sierra Wireless. The patents in question here are those that cover CDMA and HSPA data transmission as well as one which is related to the tech in WiFi and LTE.

One things for sure all these lawsuits is probably leaving the unemployment levels for lawyers at an all time low.
