Another day, another lawsuit. Voip-Pal filed a lawsuit against Apple on Feb. 9 in the United States District Court, District of Nevada case number. The following day the company filed suit against Verizon Wireless Services and AT&T.
The complaints allege infringement by Apple, Verizon and AT&T of various claims of Voip-Pal’s patents. The company seeks damages totaling over $7 billion.
Voip-Pal is a publicly traded corporation that acquired Digifonica International Limited in 2013 in order to fund, co-develop and complete Digifonica's suite of patents. Digifonica purportedly operationalized and tested its suite of software solutions with applications in five core areas of Internet connectivity: Routing, Billing and Rating; Lawful Intercept; Short Number Dialing (Enhanced 911) Mobile Gateway; and Uninterrupted Transmission.
Voip-Pa claims that “Apple, Verizon and AT&T were regrettably unwilling to engage in discussion of licensing the Company’s intellectual property and technology.”
