Openwave, Wi-LAN file new patent lawsuits against Apple

Two new intellectual property lawsuits have been launched against Apple by two smaller companies alleging patent violations. Openwave has announced legal action against both Apple and Research in Motion alleging that the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad infringe upon five of the company’s patents related to offline e-mail applications, secure client-server communications, application updating, user experience and cloud computing. In addition to the patent claim, Openwave has also filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission requesting that the ITC bar the importation of the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch, iPad and iPad 2. Another claim has been launched by Wi-LAN against Apple, Alcatel-Lucent, HP, HTC, and others alleging infringement of two patents related to wireless technologies such as CDMA, HSPA, Wi-Fi and LTE.
