re: Brocade Wins Judgment Against A10


Updated the story with A10's response.  Many elements of the judgment were trivial (a one-dollar penalty, in one case) and the patent infringement was deemed to be not willful.


Considering it's probably impossible to build a networking product without violating some patent somewhere, I'd lean towards giving A10 the benefit of the doubt.


They did have to replace some duplicate code, but A10 says the code in question runs a publicly available algorithm (Aho-Corasik?)  A10 did pay a $60M penalty for that.

re: Brocade Wins Judgment Against A10


A10 is joke. Even there name is immature as the company. A10 name is a slap to F5, trying to say they are better since "A" is better than "F" and 10 is double 5. Silly people. They don't have an original product, just trying to reproduce everyone else work for cheaper. But agree, it's almost impossible to gain entry into incumbent network market without someone saying you copy, but when it's so clearly evident it's embarrassing.

"TCP slow start" is a publicly available algorithm, but that doesn't mean I can copy an implementation of that algorithm without the copyright owner's permission.

Absolutely true. (... says the guy who's not a lawyer, but I would agree with your interpretation.)

Totally correct decision.


Hustlers (of any nationality) that just want to ripoff established companies and steal there IPR should be put to the sword.
