VirnetX tries to profit on Apple's back
VirnetX continued its attempts at making lawsuits its business model by filing a patent complaint late yesterday against several technology companies. Aastra, Apple, Cisco and NEC have been accused of violating five patents relating to secure communications without having to input information. The Tyler-based, Eastern District of Texas suit alleges that all of Apple's iOS devices, as well as VoIP phones from the other companies, are copying technology patented between 2002 and 2009.
