Google, Apple Sued Over Street View Technology

Why in the hell would someone wait this long to sue over Street View? What's that you say...the company doesn't even have a website? Heh, they probably didn't even know Street View existed. big grin

The lawsuit, picked up by PaidContent, says both companies knowingly infringed on U.S. Patent No. 6,563,529, issued to developer Jerry Jongerius in mid-2003. That patent covers an "interactive system for displaying detailed view and direction in panoramic images." In the suit, that's described as the Street View feature, the one that lets users see 3D imagery of the street, as captured through Google's Street View camera system.
