Openwave sues Apple, RIM for allegedly infringed patents


Openware Systems has filed a lawsuit against Apple and RIM, accusing them in infringing of five of its patents. Three of them are related with mobile computing, while other two apply to cloud computing and fast page navigation.

The company wants to bar the import of Apple iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4, the iPod Touch, and iPads of both generations, as well as RIM's Blackberry Curve 9930 and the PlayBook as all these products allegedly infract Openwave’s intellectual property.

It appears that Openwave approached both companies numerous times in an attempt to negotiate a license of its technology with them and when it did not receive a substantive response, the complaint was filed. Openwave sues Apple and RIM at the International Trade Commission in Washington D.C. and also at a federal district court in Delaware. However, the ITC has yet to decide whether it takes up the cause.
