It was reported this week that patent holding company IPCom, based in Munich, has sued mobile-device makers globally over mobile technology it acquired from Robert Bosch GmbH in 2007 to collect license fees. The company is now specifically suing Apple for 1.57 Billion Euro (US $2.2 Billion). FOSS Patents interestingly noted that Samsung and Google lawyers are to represent the licensing firm against Apple. Bloomberg's report noted that "Apple's lawyer Wolrad Prinz zu Waldeck und Pyrmont argued the language of the patent is restricted to one bit while the 3G standard uses three bits. The court shouldn't allow an interpretation that goes beyond the actual language the patent was granted for." Patently Apple has now learnt that IPCom has filed an ex parte for an order in California allowing them to obtain targeted discovery from Apple to be used in their case in Germany. Our report provides you with an overview of IPCom's filing.
