Patent Troll targets Apple in the touch screen patent infringement lawsuit

An infamous patent troll has resurfaced, and is suing Apple and others over the infringement of four patents dealing with capacitive keyboards, and sensors used in the iPhone 11, the third generati of the iPad Pro, and similar products by other vendors such as Microsoft and Samsung.

Two of the patents in questi deal with the different functis of the keyboard capacitive. More specifically, they claim that Apple used its keyboard technology in the design of the iPhone 11. They say their keyboard patents have been registered in October 2010 and March 2011.

The other two are based proximity and pressure sensors, and, according to Neodr, are illegally in the iPhone, Apple’s 11-and third-generati 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The proximity sensor and touch sensor of patents have been filed with the U.S. Patent Office in June 2014 and June 2016, respectively.

The act, often referred to as “patent trolling” involves actors that buy cheap patents in bulk, and scan them for any similar ccepts that may exist in profitable, well-known from the technology produced by the large companies. The patent trolls then attempt to manipulate the law of patents in the hope of forcing companies to pay a large settlement.

The patents in this new case were bought from Amtel Corporati, which had been acquired by Microchip Technology in 2016.

Apple has lg been said about the target his back. In January, Apple had urged the European Uni Commissier to take acti against patent trolls. They had argued that it was too costly in time and mey —to be dragged before the court of justice-frivolous issues.
