Irish Company Sues Apple Over Data Sync Patent Allegedly Used in iCloud and iTunes

Irish Company Sues Apple Over Data Sync Patent Allegedly Used in iCloud and iTunes

Another day, another patent lawsuit filed against Apple in Texas. An Irish business entity, Data Scape Limited, has filed a lawsuit against Apple over a data sync patent the company says Apple infringes by way of iTunes, iCloud, and the devices those services run on.

The patent in question is U.S. Patent No. 10,277,675, “Communication System And Its Method and Communication Apparatus And Its Method,” Data Scape said in its complaint, filed by lawyers for Russ August & Kabat. That patent was granted on April 30 of this year.

Apple’s services and devices violate the patent’s claim on “a communication system including a first apparatus having a first hardware storage medium, and a second [storage] apparatus,” says the complaint.

Data Scape has filed similar lawsuits against at least 14 other companies, among them Amazon, Dropbox, Fujitsu, Pandora, SAP, Spotify, and Western Digital.

The Irish firm is asking for a jury trial, to be paid legal expenses, damages with interest, and a permanent injunction against further infringement.

Apple faces lawsuits like this on a regular basis, most of which don’t pan out for the plaintiffs.
