The Framingham audio company yesterday filed a patent lawsuit against a company that makes an iPhone docking system that competes with its own SoundDock offering.
In its suit, filed in US District Court in Boston, Bose charges SDI Technologies' iHome line , which lets users turn their Apple iDevices into boomboxes, violates a patent Bose was awarded on Jan. 29  for a system for turning computers into audio systems.
Bose says SDI knew it had applied for a patent for the system and that the continued existence of iHome unfairly harms sales of its SoundDock system . Bose is seeking the complete withdrawal of the iHome line from the market and, naturally, tons of money.
