Suit Claims Apple Violated Patents

Premier International filed a law suit in Texas alleging that Apple violated two of its patents with technology used in iTunes and the iPod, according to The Inquirer. The patents both relate to list building systems for audio, music, and audio visual content.

The patents, numbered 6,243,725 and 6,763,345, were granted on 2001 and 2004.

Premier claims that Apple is using its technology as a part of the music listing and organization tools in iTunes and in the iPod. The company is seeking an injunction and damages from Apple.

Neither Premier International or Apple were available for comment.
