Apple sued over 'Find my iPhone' in new patent campaign against location apps
A shell company in Texas is invoking a 1996 patent to claim a monopoly over remote location services like Apple's "Find my Friends" and Google's defunct "Latitude," filing lawsuits against the two tech companies and against major phone carries like Verizon. The lawsuits, which also refer to Apple's "Find my iPhone" service, could spell trouble not just for the corporate giants but for the many small players in the burgeoning industry for location-based smartphone apps.
