“According to the official complaint, ‘Apple has been and is now infringing, directly and indirectly by way of inducement and/or contributory infringement, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, the Patents-in-Suit in this District and elsewhere by making, using, offering for sale, importing, and/or selling products compliant with the CDMA2000 standards (including EVDO Rev. A), HSPA standards, IEEE 802.11 standards, and/or LTE standards, that fall within the scope of at least one claim of the Patents-in-Suit,’” Purcher reports. “As a result of Apple’s infringing activities, ‘users of Apple’s Accused Products directly infringe the Patents-in-Suit.’ Although no product is listed in the complaint, it’s obvious that the complaint is focused on Apple’s iPhone and iPad with Wi-Fi and 3G.”
