This is not the first time, and certainly not the last, when Apple is being sued over claims that the company stole a certain technology, but there now seems to be a well-founded story around the case.

Biometrics firm Valencell has filed a lawsuit against Apple and Fitbit, claiming that some of their products are using its heart rate sensor without paying for a license.

The story is the same as in pretty much every IP infringement case: some companies are using a specific technology on their products, while a different firm claims that this technology is theirs and they should be paid should the products in question remain on the market.

Valencell claims its heart rate monitor is being used on products such as the Apple Watch, the Fitbit Charge HR, and the Fitbit Surge, all of which come with heart activity tracker capabilities.
