An inventor and his business partner claim that Apple stole their idea for a music and video sharing service. Scott Sander and Arthur Hair, co-founders of SightSound Technologies, have been locked in a David and Goliath battle with the tech giant since iTunes first launched in 2003. The launch of the billion-dollar service, came a decade after Hair was granted a patent for the electronic sale of digital audio and video recordings in 1993. Sanders, in a lengthy editorial in Medium, claims that Apple ripped off their idea after they pitched it to the company in the late 1990s. Despite attempts to take the computing and tech firm to court, Sander says that he and Hair have been left with almost nothing while Apple have made billions off their idea.
