On Track Innovations today announced that it has filed a lawsuit against T-Mobile USA, alleging that T-Mobile sells NFC-equipped smartphones that violate OTI's patents. The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. NFC technology lets phone owners make contactless payments as well as other applications. OTI didn't say if it was seeking damages or a licensing agreement. The company indicated that it is prepared to flex its intellectual property muscle to generate income for itself.

Why can basic ideas be locked down with patents?

It seems so wrong that simple ideas that do not require innovation or any real thought are able to be protected. It is very sad. If the air compressor where invented today by apple no gas station could afford one. I understand if they used their soft wear or their technology but some things are to basic and first to use an everyday idea should not make money off anyone else that also comes up with a service based on a simple idea that is not innovative or different in any way.
