US Patent Office Supports TZero Technologies and Rejects Pulse-LINK Patent
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TZero Technologies, the leader in Ultra Wideband (UWB) and wireless video solutions, today announced that the United States Patent Office issued an office action rejecting all claims of U.S. patent number 6,970,448 asserted in a lawsuit brought by Pulse-LINK against Tzero in June 2007.
