Apple, JPEG patent case

Apple Computer along with approximately 40 other companies are still in hot water over a patent infringement case that progressed further yesterday, reconfirming a Markman hearing on claim construction for February 13th next year. Judge Jeremy D. Fogel passed the ruling along in favor of and its wholly owned subsidiary, Compression Labs, holders of U.S. patent number 4,698,672, or the "'672 patent", which covers technologies used in JPEG image compression. The case names such IT giants as Microsoft, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, Toshiba, and many others. Forgent's intellectual property program has generated more than $100 million in revenues primarily from licensing the '672 patent to more than 40 different companies in Asia, Europe and the United States.
