MacroSolve, Inc., a leading provider of mobile technologies, apps and solutions for business, today announced its latest patent infringement suits filed against AOL, Inc., and Bank of America Corporation. MacroSolve's suit claims that both companies infringed upon its U.S. Patent No. 7,822,816.
"We continue to successfully settle suits," said MacroSolve Vice Chairman, Jim McGill. "Both AOL and Bank of America have been utilizing mobile apps as an integral part of their businesses. These apps, including AOL's Moviefone and Bank of America's banking apps, appear to be infringing upon our intellectual property rights. We believe that swift and forceful legal action is the best way to slow the sprawl of corporate copycat apps like these and protect the rights of individual and small-group innovators. We look forward to productive licensing discussions or settlements with both of these companies."
