EVER WONDER WHAT A DEMAND LETTER FROM ACACIA LOOKS LIKE? Well, here it is in all of its glory. The demand letter (dated September 30, 2004) for the '677 patent, along with a service provider license agreement, was scanned in, so you have to page through the document to read it in its entirety.

It is available courtesy of the Personal Telco Project, which is a volunteer group in Portland, Oregon that believes that "802.11 (wireless networking, or 'Wi-Fi') technology is both cool and empowering." Apparently, Acacia felt that the Hotspots formed by one of its members wasn't "cool" . . .

I haven't analyzed the agreement yet, but I'll try and provide some comments in the days to come. Interestingly, I did notice that the licence has a confidentiality clause - it makes me wonder why they were so eager to post it on their website.
