For an organization that is behind one of the best channels on TV, Discovery communications can certainly dish it out. The company is now claiming that Amazon infringed on their patent with its copyright protection system on both Kindle 1.0 and Kindle 2.0. Here is an excerpt:
This is certainly not good news for Amazon. It’s not a huge setback, but Amazon has been dealing with a handful of Kindle lawsuits and complaints lately. I don’t know about the merit of this case. There is a good chance that Amazon will settle with Discovery to avoid a major headache. But wouldn’t it be nice if this lawsuit led to Amazon removing its copy protection system? Of course, that would be a stretch.
