“A California base company by the name of Ameranth has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“Ameranth’s ‘award winning’ inventions enable generation and synchronization of menus, event tickets, and other products across fixed, wireless and/or internet platforms,” Purcher reports. “Ameranth is suing Apple on four counts related to the Passbook Ticketing System that is integrated with iPhone 5 and other iPhone and iPod Touch devices that are running Apple’s iOS-6 software, and linked to/with Apple’s iCloud, the ‘Apple Notification Service,’ and Apple’s Safari browser.”

Purcher reports, “One of Ameranth’s patents were quoted as prior art in an iPhone patent that listed Bas Ording and the late Steve Jobs as inventors.”
