Company Claims Apple's iOS Infringes on their Intellectual Property
A Delaware company by the name of Evolutionary Intelligence, LLC has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple. The patent infringement lawsuit concerns Apple's iOS mobile operating system and the devices it runs on such as the iPhone. This same company has also filed several separate suits against Facebook, Twitter and others in the last 24 hours.
The Alleged Patent Infringement In-Part
Evolutionary Intelligence, LLC's complaint for patent infringement against Apple is short and sweet. They're suing Apple on two counts. The two granted patents listed in this case are 7,010,536 and 7,702,682. Although the company claims that they are the owner of all right, title and interest of the patents, we'll point out that the official assignees listed on the patents are Pattern Intelligence, Inc. for the '536 patent and Incandescent Inc. on the '682 patent.
Evolutionary Intelligence is claiming that Apple's iOS mobile operating system and compatible devices (i.e., the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices) infringe on their Intellectual Property.
Their official complaint of patent infringement doesn't provide any reasoning behind the lawsuit nor do they quote any particular patent claims being infringed. In the event that a jury finds Apple guilty, Evolutionary is asking the court to grant them a reasonable royalty.
The case was filed in Tyler Texas. For the record, Evolutionary Intelligence, LCC is also suing Facebook, Sprint Nextel, Twitter, Foursquare Labs and others in separate filings.

Another Troll looking to be fed.
I can only hope that new laws are enacted to hold the Patent Trolls of filings with a monetary fine if found frivolous, also why not have a bond set forth by the court before any filing, if such case is deemed to be unworthy, then the bond would go to the court for costs and then the remainder to the defending company's legal procedures that had been needed to represent itself.
