A company by the name of EON Corp. is suing Apple for … go on, take a guess — yes, you’ve got it — patent infringement. The lawsuit claims Apple has violated its interactive video patents, reports “Patently Apple” (http://tinyurl.com/cvv54oo).
“Many of Apple’s major competitors in the wireless industry have properly paid for using EON’s technology. By this action, EON engages a compulsory process that will require Apple to do the same.”
According to “Patently Apple,” the company is charging Apple with four counts of infringement based on patents 5,663,757, 5,481,546, 5,592,491and 5,388,101. The latter three patents are referred to further into the complaint as the “Dinkins Patents,” which are those that were originally filed and granted to EON.
