TracBeam sues Apple over patents

Company has a track record of unfounded patent assertion activity

Colorado-based company TracBeam LLC is suing tech giant Apple Inc. over patent infringement. In the lawsuit, TracBeam claims Apple is making ‘unauthorized use’ of location based services in iOS and OS X as well as with Apple’s ‘Find My Phone’ service which lets users find their device when it’s been lost.

According to the UK-based publication, The Register, TracBeam has a history of litigation, and has also sued Google and Ericsson over location technology. It has been awarded several patents related to wireless location technology used in both consumer and businesses related technology.
