Technicolor Dissects iPhones in Hunt for Patent Payoff

SFgate.com reports that when Apple Inc.’s next iPhone hits store shelves, Technicolor SA’s engineers will rush to get the handset — not to make calls or play games, but to rip it apart.

Technicolor, an unprofitable French company that invented the process for color movies used in “The Wizard of Oz” and countless other classics, plans to cash in on its 40,000 video, audio and optics patents to turn its fortunes around. The company has a team of 220 people dissecting every new smartphone and tablet from industry goliaths such as Apple, Samsung Electronics Co. and HTC Corp. for patent infringements.
