Buffalo Technology has issued an official statement about its battle with Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

Visitors to the Wireless Products section of Buffalo's website are now redirected to a page that states "Buffalo cannot offer for sale, sell, import, or use its IEEE 802.11a and 802.11g compliant products in the United States". Existing inventory can still be sold and in-warranty defective products can be replaced.

CSIRO filed suit against Buffalo in February 2005 and in June 2007 won an injunction preventing sales of all Wi-Fi products. CSIRO is defending its U.S. Patent No. 5,487,069 that contains claims related to key technologies used in 802.11a, and g wireless standards.

Buffalo is currently awaiting the results of its appeal requesting a reversal of the decision and a stay of the injunction.
