Legal Little-known intellectual property agency IP Innovation LLC and its parent Technology Licensing Corporation this week became the latest to claim that Apple had abused a patent they hold. Filed April 18th in a US district court in Marshall, Texas the four-page formal complaint purports that Apple has engaged in 'willful and deliberate' infringement of a computer control patent by selling its current Tiger operating system. On a related note, Microsoft has similar problems.

That's funny. I'm in the same state as you (Arizona).

I wrote to Rick Renzi (my rep) last year about this issue and he sent me back a letter saying how hard he was fighting to "make Social Security more secure" and a bunch of other unrelated blather. I've always thought the guy was worthless (but a perfect representative of Yavapai County), but sheezus - I would have thought a staffer would have *at least* sent the correct form letter response.

The truth is your US rep (with a few exceptions here and there) could give a damn what you write or think. Now, if Microsoft or Qwest gives the congresscreature THEY own a call, things might change. Ironic that our best hope is from the scum that helped create this mess in the first place - which doesn't hold out much hope for our future.
