Apple Countersued By Digital Media Developer

Burst alleges that Apple's iTunes Music Store, iTunes software, iPod devices, and QuickTime Streaming products infringe its patents.

A Santa Rosa, Calif. developer of digital media technologies said Monday it filed patent infringement counterclaims against Apple Computer Inc., founded in 1988, filed counterclaims in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, San Francisco, in response to a lawsuit filed by Apple in January 2006.

Apple filed the suit seeking a declaration that Burst's patents are invalid and Apple does not infringe them. Burst requests in its counterclaims that Apple pay "a reasonable royalty for Apple's infringing products and services, and also seeks an injunction against further infringement."

In the counterclaim, Burst alleges Apple's iTunes Music Store, iTunes software, the iPod devices, and Apple's QuickTime Streaming products infringe Burst's U.S. Patents Nos. 4,963,995; 5,995,705; 5,057,932 and 5,164,839.
