Broadcaster goes after Apple's deep pockets

Reports have surfaced indicating that a broadcaster from Thailand has sued Apple for $3 million. As much money as that is for you and I, $3 million is pretty small Apple. The report came from Bangkok Post claiming that Cable Thai Holding file the lawsuit against Apple.

The lawsuit claims that an app in the Apple App Store that lets people watch English Premier League soccer on their mobile device is unlicensed. The company seeking $3 million in damages from Apple.

The app sells for $30 and let users watch soccer games on their iPhone screen. The suit does admit Apple doesn't own the company behind the application, called Sport Channel. However, the broadcaster says that Apple is making money by allowing the sale of the app on its marketplace. It sounds like a broadcaster simply going after the deep pockets of Apple rather than the developer of the application.
