Openwave Hits Apple and RIM with Patent Complaint
Openwave has filed a complaint against both Apple and Research In Motion alleging patent infringement on technologies related to mobile devices. In the filing, Openwave CEO Ken Denman said, "Before filing these complaints, we approached both of these companies numerous times in an attempt to negotiate a license of our technology with them and did not receive a substantive response. In the end, litigation is the only way we can defend our rights against these large companies that have effectively refused to license the use of the technologies we invented." The technologies in question pertain to how mobile devices connect to the mobile internet. Apple and RIM have yet to officially respond to the complaint. Openwave makes, among other things, web browsers for mobile phones.
