iPhone in trouble…again?

Apple are reportedly being sued for infringing on Romek Figa’s patented caller ID system. Figa claims that he approached Apple regarding the caller ID functionality that he patented in 1990.

Figa approached Apple in July last year to negotiate a fee for the use of his patented technology, but the Silicon Valley giants declined.

The suit
reads: "Apple is actively engaged in acts of direct infringement of the ‘496 patent."

And further states that: "Apple’s infringement has been and continues to be willful and deliberate.
Apple will continue to engage in such acts unless enjoined by this court."
