Apple files suit against Sorenson

Apple is suing Sorenson Media in an effort to prevent the company from licensing its video compression software to Macromedia, according to a report on Bloomberg today. Apple claims that Sorenson is in breach of contract, as the company previously signed an agreement with Apple preventing them from “developing, marketing, or licensing” any form of their compression technology used in QuickTime. Sorenson has issued a press release responding to the allegation. “We are greatly surprised by the presumptive filing of this suit without prior discussions or understandings between the parties,” said Jim Sorenson, CEO of Sorenson Media. “We are reasonable, and as is usual practice, we are always willing to discuss and work to resolve issues. In the meantime, we remain focused on executing our overall corporate and product strategy and doing what we feel is best for our customers.”
