Apple sued for allegedly stealing “Sign in with Apple” technology

Blix, the creator of email client Blue Mail, has sued Apple for allegedly stealing technology from its “Share Email” feature and using it in its “Sign in with Apple” functionality.

According to Blix, Blue Mail patented technology in 2017 which enables anonymous public messaging by letting users share a second, public address without giving away the details to their personal address.

Replacing an email field in an OAuth response is an incredibly generic concept (that's what Sign in With Apple does). Patents like this shouldn't exist.
