Apple has been hit with a lawsuit by a company claiming that a key elements of the iPhone Safari browser infringes their copyright.
Elliot Gottfurcht and two of his co-inventors from EMG Technology LLC have claimed that the technology used to navigate and display some websites designed for small phone screens infringes on a patent obtained last month.
The lawsuit was filed in the US District Court in Tyler, Texas, although the company is based in Los Angeles.
Apple spokeswoman Susan Lundgren declined to comment on the lawsuit, telling Reuters that the Cupertino, California-based company does not discuss pending litigation.
It's all about the principle right?
