Space Systems/Loral countersues Viasat over patent infringements

After the US satellite operator ViaSat sued US satellite manufacturer Space Systems/Loral in February for patent infringement and breach of contract related to the unauthorized use of Viasat-1’s broadband communications satellite technology on other spacecraft, Space Systems/Loral has fired back with litigation of its own. Space Systems Loral’s countersuit filings were made on 9 April in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. These allege that Viasat had itself been trying to lay claim to Space System/Loral technology and patents with respect to its ground terminal and satellite technology, and that it was trying to claim copyright on the fundamental laws of physics.
