Microsoft Sued Over Rights to Kinect Tech

Microsoft is being sued by Intelligent Verification Systems, a Virginia based company that specializes in facial recognition technology. The company claims that Microsoft infringed on the company’s patent for the software, which dates back to 2006, to produce one of the company’s highest selling products, Kinect.

Intelligent Verification Systems claims they sent a letter to Microsoft in June 2011 to inform them of the patent infringement but it seems the two groups were unable to come to an agreement.
