Another patent holding company is going for the jugulars of three wireless giants, one of them being in Cupertino.

Voip-Pal.com Inc. has filed suit against Apple, AT&T and Verizon and is looking to get cumulative damages of $7 billion after the company said it could not negotiate licensing terms with the defendants for its patents.

In the case with Apple, Voip-Pal asserts infringement claims against iMessage and the Wi-Fi Calling features. The two patents in question pertain to classifying communication participants and the routing of the communications between certain classes of participants. Sending a message through iMessage or SMS and via cellular network or LAN seem to be some of the end issues, here.

Voip-Pal’s CEO said that the company is continuing negotiations with the defendants, saying that, “we are confident the current good will on both sides will result in a favorable outcome for all parties involved.”
