We have another update on the Ultra lawsuit for you (Original OCC news post, update)! Ultra sued its competitors because they were importing power supplies that were not licensed under its own patent, so the US International Trade Commission (ITC) has launched investigations. This gives the whole news post a more serious basis, as it was regarded as a joke by many! The patent in question (see the update post for more information on it) was originally issued to TigerDirect co-founder Carl Fiorentino in September 2004, but he assigned it to Ultra products in 2006. A target date for the completion of the investigation will be issued within 45 days, the ITC said. Watch for more news on this as the investigation commences!
