Smartflash Sues Apple Again Over Newer iPhones
Smartflash, a Texas-based patent holding firm that won a courtroom victory over Apple earlier this week, is suing the company again. According to Smartflash, it was unable to include Apple's most recent devices, such as the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad Air 2, in its initial lawsuit. Now that it has won in court, it wants the same findings applied to Apple's newest devices, which it says violate the same patents. "Apple cannot claim they don’t know about these patents or understand that they are infringing. A diligent jury has already rejected those arguments," said Smartflash's attorney in a statement provided to Reuters. Apple did not immediately comment on the matter.

I'm Suing Apple
Normally Im against patent troll firms...
Just goes to show one of the biggest patent trolls of them all...
the one who fired the opening salvo in the war of stupid non-unique non-patentable patents...
the one who intentionally made those PTO employee's lives hell for Years...
even you with your astronomically inflated stock price...
you too can get a little of what you deserve.
So pot meet kettle, I'm glad they are hitting you where it hurts.
