In addition to the potential protracted battle with Qualcomm, Apple has recently been sued by Fintiv, a Texas company.
The company claims to be a new company made up of "veterans" of the industry. It was founded in 2018, but has more than 20 years of industry experience. The company employs between 11 and 50 people and belongs to the mobile payment and marketing industries. The company claims that Apple's Apple Pay service infringes on technology that infringes a patent Fintiv previously acquired in Korea. Specifically, the patents involved include the storage and use of digital wallet data technologies related to billing protocols or online purchases on mobile devices.
Fintiv's website is very simple, it provides a lot of company stock images, but also provides extraordinary marketing discourse. Although the company listed an obvious "product" title at the top of its website, it will only lead you to learn more about Fintiv and a portal related to them. Foreign media believe that this is a typical patent rogue company.
It's not the first time Apple has been sued, but it's annoying enough for Apple to reappear at this time.
