This story talks about the ongoing court battle between Sony and Immersion. In spite of the court battle, a third party, Internet Services LLC, seeks to expand its business by finding more partners for "rumble applications." The "rumble application" relates to a mouse that vibrates during games at appropriate times making the games more enjoyable. Jeff Berman quotes Professor Lemley about the state of the lawsuit:

"We will be pursuing our claims against Immersion for our share of the judgment" because the appeals court "clearly rejects the District Court's reasoning and... makes it clear that we have the right to sue under the license agreement for our share of the judgment," said Mark Lemley, a professor at Stanford Law School.
