Patents, which were originally intended to protect the economic rights of the inventor, have increasingly become a way of earning a living. It is enough to purchase several patented technology patents and claim compensation from the companies that use them.
This is how the so-called. Patent trolls, and one of them is the Texas company Corydoras Technologies, LLC, which has just launched the Apple process. The company accuses the US giant of illegally using its technology, which concerns iPhone and iPad. There are solutions for making phone calls and video calls, doing selfie, and blocking incoming calls.
The list of devices using Corydoras Technologies patents includes models available since 2010, all smartphones starting with iPhone 4, and all tablets from iPad 2 including iPad Pro.
The Texas lawsuit claims six charges against key technology for the functioning of each smartphone and is standard equipment for each model. They also include front camera, geographic display of data based on GPS, as well as sending and receiving emails.
