dell623 (2021586) writes "A patent lawsuit by patent licensing firm Digitude Innovations curiously targeted all mobile manufacturers except Apple. A Techcrunch story has revealed that the patents used were transferred via a shell company to DI, and appear to cover features found in virtually all smartphones. The lawsuit even extends to companies that don't make Android phones like Nokia and RIM, and to Android OEMs that Apple have not directly sued yet like Sony. The business model of DI clearly implies that Apple would benefit financially from the lawsuit as a company that contributed patents to DI's portfolio."
