The following is excerpted from an April 16, 2010 post by Alex Eckelberry at the Sunbelt Blog:
SonicWALL, a company I’ve had a lot of respect for in the past, has apparently decided to improve its revenue outlook by going after other software companies for alleged patent infringement. Disappointing.
The patents are all over the place, and don’t mean much for our products. We are asking them for more clarity as to how exactly our products allegedly infringe on their patents, as we are a bit confused.
A link to the demand letter is available in the post here.
