Boston University sues Apple for patent infringement
Boston University has already filed claims against eight other manufacturers including Samsung and Amazon. One tech analyst, Roger Kay of Endpoint Technologies Associates, believes that if BU wins its case against Apple, it could end up netting as much as $75 million. He says that a settlement could also result in that high of a payout. What might sway a jury in the University's favor is the fact that at least one company pays a licensing fee to use the component in question.
