Troll seeks toll because iPhones work

Apple, your iPhones are making phone calls so we're suing you: that's the substance of the latest round of patent-trolling attempt against Cupertino.

The patent accumulator in the case is Texas-based Corydoras Technologies its filing explains that it's a subsidiary of Japanese company Anubias Technologies .

Its sueball covers every iPad back to 2, and iPhones newer than 4.

All of the patents are some trivial variation on communication device , variously with the ability to make phone calls, video calls, send messages, take photographs and other characteristics that are fundamental to smart phones.

The patents name Iwao Fujisaki as the inventor, have filing dates from 2006 to 2010, and priority dates in 2001.

Proving yet again that if the law is an ass, patent law attracts Sir Mixalot fans.
