“A Delaware based company by the name of STEC IP has launched a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple on seven counts,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.
“The main focus of the infringement case surrounds Apple’s iCloud and iTunes related services,” Purcher reports. “The exception is one count that that claims that VPN Tunnels found in Apple’s OS X Lion Server violates their patents. Notable in this case is the fact that five out of the seven patents presented in this case were originally granted to Symantec.”
Purcher reports, “The case was filed in the United States District Court for Delaware. No judge has been assigned as of yet. STEC IP is seeking a ‘reasonable royalty’ in this case against Apple. It should also be noted that GlobeNewswire is reporting that STEC IP has also recently filed suits against Amazon.com, Amazon Web Services, Google, Microsoft, and Oracle.”
