ABSTRACT
The article describes the competition to create standards covering high-speed communication network called Mobile-Fi. The technology has gotten tangled up in a high-stakes, nasty fight over what technical standards should be adopted to guide its use. In August, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission found unanimously that chipmaker Rambus of Los Altos, California had broken the law when it deceived a standards body in a bid for billions in patent profits.
