The list that Kootol Software mentions in its press release include Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Google, Amazon, AOL, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter, Twitpic, Research In Motion, Yahoo and more. The press release added that Kootol Software was also planning to serve similar notices to "several other companies and developers".

The company"added that "the purpose of serving this notice is to bring the fact to the attention of said multiple companies at the very earliest stage so that said companies get a full opportunity to examine the matter."

The web site FOSS Patents reports that the actual patent that Kootol references in the press release hasn't actually been granted to the company yet by the US Patent and Trademark Office. It adds that in sending out this notice to the various companies, Kootol may have given them time to ask other patent offices like the European Patent Office "to reject the application."
