The company that won $532.9 million from Apple is suing them again

I doubt many you had even heard of Smartflash before it won a $532.9 million against Apple a few days ago concerning some patent disputes over iTunes technology. That’s definitely a massive victory but the small Texas-based company wants to take things even further and is now suing Apple yet again, this time regarding some of the company’s newest products.

Shortly after a jury in Texas awarded it US$532.9 million in damages in a patent dispute with Apple, patent company Smartflash has sued the iPhone maker again, this time to focus on newer Apple products. “Apple has released new products that came out too late for inclusion in Smartflash’s previous action against Apple,” Smartflash’s attorney Bradley W. Caldwell said in an email Thursday. The company sued Apple and others in May 2013 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler division, alleging that iTunes software infringed on six of its patents related to serving and managing access to data. The jury found earlier this week that Apple infringed three Smartflash patents in order to produce and sell its popular iTunes software. It also found the three Smartflash patents to be valid. Smartflash had asked for $852 million in damages.
