HTC Files Counterclaim Against Apple Using Two Acquired Patents
HTC has filed a counterclaim against Apple alleging the company infringes on two patents it has acquired from HP, reports ComputerWorld.
HTC claimed in a filing on Tuesday to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida it has been assigned all rights, title and interest of U.S. Patent No. 7,571,221 (the '221 patent) entitled "Installation of network services in an embedded network server," which was assigned to HP.
It also claims all rights, title, and interest to U.S. Patent No. 7,120,684 (the '684 patent), entitled "Method and system for central management of a computer network," which was assigned to Electronic Data Systems.
HTC says Apple Remote Desktop, Apple Profile Manager, and products that use those infringe on the '684 patent.
HTC says products using iOS and OS X products which contain embedded network servers infringe on the '221. That includes various Macs, iPhones, and iPads.
