Immersion is pursuing legal action against Apple seeking reparations for damages. Immersion also filed a complaint with (ITC) International Trade Commission for sales injunction on iPhone 6s plus and iPhone 6s in United State.
Big company like Apple used to staffing strong legal department very quick. Lawsuits have become necessary part of companies about Copyright claims. Now a days suing big companies like Apple is viable way to earn some bucks, Its a quite Profitable business model.
Although there are many honest case are being mistreated. Those small companies in the market asking for justice. Just like Immersion claims to be doing with its recent lawsuit against Apple and its Force Touch and 3D Touch technology.
This claim revolves around three patents awarded to Immersion. The first is titled “Haptic feedback system with stored effects ” and seems to describe software that shows previews after a light press and actions after a firm one. That does sound quite familiar to Apple’s “Peek and Pop”,
The second and third patents are “Method and Apparatus for Providing Tactile Sensations” and “Interactivity Model for Shared Feedback on Mobile Devices”, which Immersion ties to Apple’s haptic feedback on touch. But that sounds like a bit more vague of a claim.
