Bogus Lawsuit Against Apple & Starbucks

According to Apple Insider, "A Utah couple acting as their own attorneys have filed a lawsuit against Apple and Starbucks over the retailers' recent "Song of the Day" promotion, which offers Starbucks customers a iTunes gift card for a complimentary, pre-selected song download."

Yeah. Uh-huh. Problem is that I designed and implemented this system beginning in 1999. It became the basis of a number of products that grew into PocketPass and Tibanna.

The diagrams in the lawsuit look exactly like my system.

Can you say, "prior art?" Suuuuuure you can!
