Patent trollin’: Scramoge Technology sues Apple for patent infringement

Lawsuit claims Apple violates wireless charging patents

Another day, another lawsuit. Non-practicing entity Scramoge Technology  is suing Apple for — what else? — patent infringement. The patent troll (more on that in a moment) claims the tech giant infringes its wireless charging patents.

AppleInsider reports that Dublin-based Scramoge Technology filed suit against Apple in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. The lawsuit claims iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods infringe on a batch of patents acquired from LG.

By the way, a “patent troll” is an individual or an organization that purchases and holds patents. The goal: stifle competition or launch patent infringement suits. In legal terms, a patent troll is a type of non-practicing entity. That’s someone who holds a patent but isn’t involved in the design or manufacture of any product or process associated with that patent.
