The Inquirer is reporting that Apple has been hit with a lawsuit by Premier International for what the company claims is patent infringement (patent numbers 6,243,725 and 6,763,345). “These patents, claimed Premier, have been incorporated into iPod, iTunes and PC product lines,” notes the story. “The first of the patents is a list building system granted in June 2001 for building an inventory of audio, musical, and audio visual works. The second is also for a list building system, granted on July 13th 2004.” [Link credit to The Mac Observer]
