Paul Allen’s Suit Against Tech Industry: Take Two

Paul Allen’s Interval Licensing has revived a patent lawsuit against a number of tech companies, including Google and Apple, filing a new set of court papers on Tuesday.

Allen sued Google, Apple, AOL, eBay, Facebook, Netflix, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Staples and Yahoo in August, but the case was dismissed earlier this month, with Tuesday set as the deadline for Interval to file an amended complaint. As noted by open source industry blogger Florian Mueller, the new claims include allegations that Android infringes on Interval patents, adding to a growing list of legal claims being leveled in the mobile arena.
