Suit filed by Ultra Products against many power supply manufacturers
Posted: April 9, 2008 08:43AM
Of all the power supply manufacturers that offer modular power supplies, there is apparently only one
that is allowed to sell them, Ultra Products. They have the patent for this technology, but many other manufacturers have been selling their modular power supplies just as well. Ultra now filed a lawsuit against the whole bunch of them on April 4th in the Florida Middle District Court
. You ask yourself who that whole bunch is, well it really is any manufacturer that sells modular power supplies: Antec, Channel Well, Corsair, Enhance, E-Power, SPI Electronic Group, FSP (Forton), Koolance, Mushkin, OCZ, Seasonic, Silverstone, Spire, Tagan, Thermaltake, Topower and Zalman. That's a long list to sue! Such a lawsuit would usually have caused quite a bit of publicity at least amongst the online community, but right now only a few sources, one being JonnyGURU
, have posted anything about it. We will keep you up to date on the outcomes of this lawsuit.
Thanks to road-runner for tipping me off on this bit of news!
