Small Company Sues Apple, Google, and Microsoft for Patent Infringement

Arizona: Cygnus Systems has filed lawsuits against Google, Microsoft, and Apple for allegedly infringing patent #7346850, a “system and method for iconic software environment management”.

The patent application was submitted back in 2001 but approval wasn’t granted until early this year. Cygnus Systems claims that the ability to preview documents without opening them violates this patent.

Products which allegedly violate the patent include Safari, iPhone, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 8, OSX, and Vista. The company is asking the court for “reasonable royalties” and is investigating other potentially infringing products.
