Some Company We've Never Heard Of Sues Apple Over iPhone Patent


Maybe you’d like to know—or maybe you woudln’t?—that some no-name company is suing our Apple, claiming that the touch screen in its iPhone infringes upon one of its patents. The company, SP Technologies, which is the successor to Conglom-O, says that Apple “has infringed, and is now infringing” (ooh, how official sounding) on its patent for “method and medium for a computer readable keyboard display incapable of user termination.”

Duke Nukem Forever will come out before this suit ever impacts Apple.
