Tsera thinks it owns the touchpad, sues pretty much everyone to prove it

Darren Murph

Do you have any idea where you head when you'd like to sue everyone on the face of the planet, make yourself look like a Class-A fool and get a mention right here? The Eastern District of Texas (Tyler) District court, that's where. The freshest meshuggeneh to head on down there and start trouble is Tsera, who's claiming that Apple, Microsoft, LG, Philips, Bang & Olufsen, iriver, Coby, Cowon and even Meizu are violating a patent that it owns. Said patent is titled "Methods and apparatus for controlling a portable electronic device using a touchpad," and evidently each of the aforesaid outfits have failed to pay Tsera for using its technology. Before you get all bent out of shape, you should realize that this case -- in all likelihood -- will simply be tossed out or settled away from the courtroom, but you can bet your bottom dollar that Tsera's never gonna be satisfied. Or taken seriously.
