Technology giant Apple has made billions of dollars selling its popular devices such as the iPhone. People sitting in their living rooms here in Florida and across the globe can purchase many of Apple's products from the company's website. Recently, the company's iPhone and its website have become the subject of business litigation filed in separate jurisdictions by two unrelated individuals.
One man claims that Apple is infringing on his 2008 patent regarding his design for web-based carousel technology. The patent covers a method and system of displaying information on a website. The man claims that Apple is using technology based on his patent to sell its products on the Apple website. He is requesting that the court order Apple to pay him royalties for the use of his patented technology, along with the maximum rate of interest allowed by law.
