Boston University, which has been busy filing patent lawsuits against high-tech companies in recent months, yesterday added Apple to its legal sights.
In a lawsuit filed in US District Court in Boston, BU charges that the LEDs used in the iPhone 5, iPad and MacBook Air violate a patent it holds based on the work of Theodore Moustakas, one of its electrical engineering and computer science professors, for "growing" LED components out of gallium nitride.
BU wants lots of money in recompense and an order to stop Apple from selling devices with the allegedly offending LEDs.
