Apple involved in a suit regarding tech that helps iPhone surf Web
Screwed or sued, either ways Apple gets embroiled in yet another litigation. This time round its real estate developer Elliot Gottfurcht and two co-inventors suing Apple over a technology the iPhone uses to surf the Web infringes on a patent filed by them. The suit states that, the technology the iPhone uses to navigate and display some websites designed for small phone screens infringes on a patent obtained last month by Gottfurcht and his co-inventors and assigned to EMG. HTC Corp, maker of the G1 Google phone, and Research in Motion Ltd, maker of the BlackBerry can consider themselves a bit lucy because EMG has not yet filed anything against them as they infringe on the same technology.
