“Apple is being sued by Brandywine Communications Technologies over multimedia voicemail in its iPhone and iPad products,” Erica Ogg reports for GigaOM.
“In the complaint filed in the U.S. district court for the middle district of Florida Tuesday, Brandywine claims that Apple is infringing on two patents it owns related to mobile voicemail,” Ogg reports.
Ogg reports, “So who is Brandywine Communications Technologies? When Verizon sued the company last week for infringement — on different patents — the carrier basically accused Brandywine of patent trolling. In that complaint against Brandywine, Verizon described the company as ‘a patent holding company that is in the business of enforcing patent rights through the filing of various lawsuits.’”
