A company called Tsera has filed a copyright infrigement suit against Apple, and alot more companies on the infringment of the touchpad technology.

The iPhone and iPod-related lawsuit, filed Wednesday, also includes Microsoft (Zune), Cowon (Curve), iRiver LG, high end speaker firm Bang & Olufsen, Philips and even iPhone clone manufacturer Meizu. There are 20 defendants named in all.

I'm wishing Tsera the best of luck in their suit because its seriously dumb. It states that the defendants have in one form or another  "recognizes different swipe movements on a touchpad without having to provide visual feedback or to look at the player to understand what's taking place."

A suit against all the big guns at once? You better have something more bullet proof than this!
