Apple Sued For Patent Infringement Because Others Have Turned iPhone Into Ebook Reader
from the how-does-that-make-sense dept
Despite Steve Jobs’ proud promotion of the 200 patents Apple has around the iPhone, there’s been no shortage of patent infringement lawsuits filed against the company. The latest (sent in by Jon) involves a company suing Apple for daring to promote the iPhone as an ebook reader, noting it holds a patent on An Electronic device, preferably an electronic book. So apparently the fact that others, by creating software to do the rather obvious thing of allowing people to read digital ebooks on their iPhones, Apple is now getting sued?
