3Com: court halted shipments from Intel´s Xircom in USA

3Com announced that a federal court has blocked Intel´s Xircom subsidiary from selling several LAN and modem cards in the USA marketplace.

The preliminary injunction of the federal court against Xircom is in full force, effectively immediately. As of the July 25 afternoon, when 3Com posted the required bond with the court, Xircom was fully prohibited from making, using, or selling about 26 products in the United States. Mainly 10/100 Ethernet LAN of Xircom RealPort and RealPort2 lines.

Last year, 3Com filed its motion for a preliminary injunction against Xircom, which was acquired by Intel in late 2001. By the way, Intel purchased Xircom in the very end of конце 2001, so it is not directly related to patent violation. Intel representatives said they were disappointed by court injunction and entered a protest, asking to delay it until the appeal is considered. Except the fact that it´s only a preliminary injunction, according to Intel, there are several patent actions in the Supreme Court where Xircom is a claimant.

In March of this year, the court decided that 3Com was likely to prevail on its claim that Xircom infringes claim 29 of U.S. Patent #6,146,209. On July 19, the court granted 3Com´s motion, and the preliminary injunction took effect on July 25, 2002.
