Apple being sued by Scottish based compant

I was browsing just before heading to bed and came across this interesting story.

It would appear that a Glasgow based company is taking on the mighty Apple Inc. in a lawsuit where it alleges Apple is infringing upon a patent it has registered in the United States.

Picsel technologies LTD is claiming that technologies used in Apple’s iPhone are ones that it developed and patented in 2001. Picsel technologies has licenced big companies such as Nokia, Sharp, Toshiba and Fujitsu to use this technology that Apple are allegedly using in their iPhone and iPod touch.

A copy of the lawsuit can be found here.

This is a very interesting story and I will be following it very closely.
