Intertrust sues Apple over patent infringement Intertrust Technologies, a software company owned by Sony and Philips, has sued Apple over patent infringement.
The 15 patents are related to security and covers devices across Apple's spectrum such as the iPad, iPhone, Apple TV and Mac desktops and laptops.

Additionally, the suit covers iTunes, iCloud and the Apple App Store.

Intertrust develops and licenses DRM software, which is then used by content producers from the music, movie and gaming industries. Companies such as Samsung, HTC, Nokia and others license the software.

"Apple makes many great products that use Intertrust's inventions," Talal Shamoon, Intertrust`s chief executive officer, said in the statement. "We find it regrettable that we are forced to seek Court assistance to resolve this matter."

There was no word on what damages Intertrust is seeking.

No matter which side your on, the patent war cost will always be filtered down to consumers. Everyone loses.
