The legal departments of leading high tech companies now have a new opponent in the face of a world unknown company. The InNova filed suit in the courts of Texas, accusing virtually the entire market for stealling patent on the filtering of spam emails, which secured 15 years ago by the founder.
Robert Uomini claims that at the time a patent Nos 6018761 is in existince to manage spam. The description of the patent states that this method separates the spam email from them wanted to be read by the current user. Uomini now argues that most companies have illegally copied its patent. Among other things, the lawsuit brought against Apple, Google, 3Com, HP, IBM, Yahoo, Research In Motion (RIM), Dell, Symantec, McAfee, Alcatel-Lucent and Ericsson.
Obviously, InNova has put a bold target cash compensation. Certainly, it is easy to mess with the whole world, so if justified, InNova will be talking about a real victory of David against Goliath.
