Getcher Bose ripoffs right here!

OK, maybe that's not quite right, but a complaint has been filed on behalf of Bose against a bunch of companies who supposedly are importing noise-canceling headphones that infringe on patents held by Bose (which is based in Framingham, Mass. Who knew?)

Maybe this means that until the dispute is settled, you could get Bose quality without Bose price? Maybe not. I don't own, nor do I plan to buy, noise-canceling headphones, but if I did, I might check out:
Phitek Systems Limited, Level 4, Axon Building, 2 Kingdom Street,
Newmarket, Auckland, New Zealand. (I used to live in Newmarket, btw)
Phitek Systems Limited, 3049 Summerhill Court, San Jose, California
GN Netcom, Inc., 77 Northeastern Boulevard, Nashua, New Hampshire
Audio Technica U.S., Inc., 1221 Commerce Drive, Stow, Ohio 44224.
Creative Labs, Inc., 1901 McCarthy Boulevard, Milpitas, California
Logitech Inc., 6505 Kaiser Drive, Fremont, California 94555.
Panasonic Corporation of North America, One Panasonic Way, Secaucus,
New Jersey 07094.

They being the respondents in this dispute...
