Foundry files "Son of Rambus" Suit v. Alca

Andy Updegrove writes "Santa Clara-based Foundery Networks has filed a "Son of Rambus" law suit alleging that French telecommunications giant Alcatel engaged in exactly the same sort of "submarine patent" trap-setting that the FTC slammed Rambus for last week. According to the complaint, Alcatel "duped" the IEEE into adopting a user identification standard that later became widely adopted, while simultaneously filing patents that would be sure to be infringed by implementers of that standard."
