Wireless Ink Sues Facebook Over Patent Infringement

WSJ is reporting that Facebook and Google have been sued by Wireless Ink Corp, a Long Island based company for patent infringement. Wireless Ink is accusing Facebook and Google’s mobile websites of infringing upon Wireless Ink’s patent that was sought in 2004 and finally granted to them in 2009.

Wireless Ink’s patent was for a process of “management of information content for enhanced accessibility over wireless communication networks.” After acquiring the patent Wireless Ink has now taken both Facebook and Google to court  alleging that Facebook’s social network and Google’s Gmail and Buzz, alongwith the mobile sites of both companies are using their patented techniques.
