Personal Audio, LLC Goes After Apple Again
PA has now filed a new infringement suit (again in East Texas) accusing "the iPod Nano Generation 6, iPod Shuffle Generation 4, iPod Touch Generation 4, iPhone 4, and iPad 2". That's according to FOSS Patents, who have dug into the case to see what's really at stake. It's hard to predict an outcome, but the odds of PA winning again seem good. They're filing in the same place that they won before, and Apple's products haven't changed hugely over the past two years.
Will anything about Apple's products change due to this? It's not likely; more likely is that Apple will pony up again should they lose, PA will get richer, and things will keep on keeping on. Got to love litigation!
