Apple, Google and Napster sued over videos

What do you do when your Internet video company flops and goes bankrupt? Apparently, you sue. Apple, Google and Napster have now all come under fire from “Intertainer”, a company that claims those three are violating patents their company owns regarding distributing video over the Internet. All three targeted companies are currently remaining tight-lipped about the matter:

Apple spokesman Steve Dowling said Wednesday the company does not comment on pending litigation, while Napster spokeswoman Dana Harris said the company was looking into the matter. A call to Google for comment was not immediately returned.
Intertainer has a history of lawsuits. After closing its doors nearly five years ago, they brought a lawsuit against several movie studios claiming they were conspiring to get the company shut down in favor of another e-business.
