As more brick and mortar bookstores close everyday, booksellers must find new ways to stay in business. This often means developing and selling e-readers, which turn out to have their own drawback: lawsuits. Today Microsoft sued Barnes & Noble over patent infringement regarding the Android-based e-reader, Nook. The patent in question deals topics such as the tabs to move between screens, surfing the web faster, using documents, and the way users interact with e-books.
This is one of many lawsuits Microsoft is involved in against Google’s mobile operating system, however they have yet to directly go after the search engine giant yet.
