Patent Wars: The case chronicles

27 Apr

Just when you think people will sue over just about anything, something new jumps up and bites you in the ass. Seeing someone sue for an intellectual property claim is not uncommon, or complain about about hardware. Even this claim is nothing new for a company bringing in billions upon billions of cheddar.

On Thursday April 26th,Jeral Bovino filled a complaint with the Colorado district court. His claim is that Apple infringed on his patent (US 6,977,809) for a “Portable Computer Case”. Mr. Bovino is asking Apple and retailer Target to pay royalties for using technology that he invented.

No word from either camp as to what will happen with this, but it is sure as hell fun to watch all of these little disputes.
