“A Reno Nevada company by the name of Unwired Planet Inc., formerly Openwave Systems, appears to be gambling on a patent infringement suit against Apple,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.
“The company is claiming that most everything Apple sells in the way of products and services are in direct violation of ten specific patents that they own,” Purcher reports. “According to information on their website, Unwired Planet filed a complaint in 2011 with the International Trade Commission (ITC) in Washington, DC, requesting that the ITC bar Apple Inc. from importing into the United States their smartphones and tablet computers that they believed infringed on Unwired Planet patents.”
Purcher reports, “Unwired Planet also simultaneously filed a similar complaint in federal district court in Delaware. Unwired Planet is asking the court to award them “reasonable royalties” and much more if Apple is found guilty.”
