Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, was given until December 28th 2010, to revise a lawsuit he had filed in August against 11 companies including AOL, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google and Netflix. A U.S. District Court Judge had deemed the original lawsuit insufficient; the last minute revisions were submitted on 12/28.

The lawsuit indicates that the aforementioned companies have violated a patent infringement by displaying information, including texts and voice messages, to a user of a mobile device in an unobtrusive manner. These violations would include Apple’s iTunes store and Facebook’s “Like” and “News Feed” features. The lawsuit would bar services that are currently being offered by the 11 companies cited in the lawsuit. See the full story, http://abcn.ws/fx17NP.
