Apple sued over iTunes video downloads

Apple has been sued by a New Jersey-based company over its iTunes video download offerings. The suit, filed by Multi-Format, Inc. in the Northern District of Illinois East District Court, claims that Apple’s products infringe on the company’s 2003 patent entitled “Multi-format audio/video production system.” Patently Apple reports that the suit names the iPhone, iPad, iPod classic, iPod nano, iPod touch, Apple TV, and iTunes as infringing; the patent itself describes the delivery, conversion, and playback of digital video. Multi-Format is seeking damages and interest from the date the infringement began.
