Looks like patent fever hasn’t escaped this ex-Microsoft founder. Turns out that along with nine other companies, Paul Allen is suing Apple for alleged patent violations.
Where things get interesting, is in the intentions of the lawsuit. See, most suits are generally designed to seek specific damages whereas this one, is a bit more fuzzy than that.
Seems that there is no clear dollar amount, rather a play to let the Internet using folks out there know that he’s still relevant and that we all need to bow before him. At least that was the takeaway I got from it.
