Axios – Google sued on Tuesday to keep a new Android and desktop app from appearing on Google’s Android and iOS platforms.
The lawsuit says the “Google Glass” app, which Google says will be on its Android and Apple platforms next year, violates a Google Glass patent.
Google is seeking an injunction against the app and a payment of up to $100,000 to settle the lawsuit.
The app was created by a group of developers in March, but it is not yet available on Google Play or in the Apple App Store.
It has not been approved for use on Google Glass and has not received approval for other Google Glass-related software.
“Google claims that it owns the rights to use Google Glass as a wearable computing device,” the lawsuit said.
“But this claim is not supported by the facts and has no basis in law.”
The suit comes as Google is battling the U.S. Department of Justice over the continued use of a controversial anti-piracy tool known as the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA.
