MacroSolve continues to defend mobile app patent

Mobile app provider protects its patent through lawsuits. Published: 2/15/2012

Mobile technology provider MacroSolve is involved in another patent infringement lawsuit, this time filing claims against Yelp and Newegg. MacroSolve believes the social networking site and the online retailer violated its patent related to mobile information collection systems.

There have been 52 different patent infringement lawsuits waged by MacroSolve in an attempt to protect its intellectual property. The prevalence of intellectual property disputes in the tech sector should encourage all tech businesses to invest in a professional liability insurance policy, which affords protections related to litigation of this kind.

The patent in question in the latest MacroSolve case covers a fundamental technology in the mobile app space, which relates to information collection systems across all wireless networks, smartphones, tablets and other types of mobile devices.

Another issue concerning the protection of intellectual property is doing so in the cloud, reported CIO.

The website recently provided some strategies for assuring the security of such property in the cloud for businesses making the transition, which included practices such as picking the right provider, selecting the right service, reading the find print of contracts, creating specific regulations and paying more for better service.
