LXer: Patent-waving Boston U. wins cash from Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft

Published at LXer:

Boston University has won settlements from 25 companies it sued for infringing "a professorís patented technology for producing blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs)," a university news site reported yesterday. Apple's iPhone 5, iPad, and MacBook Air were listed as infringing the patented technology, along with Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Fire. The Amazon products infringed BU's patent by using LEDs made by Seoul Semiconductor Company in their screens, BU said. Seoul Semiconductor was among the companies that BU won settlements from.
