MShift Sues DI Over Mobile Patent

"MShift, Inc. today announced the filing of a patent infringement action against Digital Insight Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intuit Corp., as well as against Community Trust Financial Corporation and Community Trust Bank.

The '881 Patent' is entitled a 'System for Converting Wireless Communications for a Mobile Device' and was awarded to MShift on September 27, 2005.

By dynamically adapting and configuring data from one or more sources for presentation and use via mobile phones, the '881 Patent' describes an innovative conversion engine that defines the modern mobile banking experience." >> Continue Reading
