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.
