HTC Sues Apple With Patents Acquired From Google

Posted September 7, 2011 at 10:17pm by iClarified
HTC today filed infringement claims against Apple using patents obtained from Google last week, reports Bloomberg.

The nine patents originated with Palm Inc., Motorola Inc. and Openwave Systems Inc., with Google taking ownership within the past year, according to U.S. Patent and Trademark Office records. Mountain View, California-based Google recorded transfer of the patents to HTC on Sept. 1, according to the agency's website.

HTC sued Apple today in federal court in Delaware, claiming infringement of four of those patents that originally were issued to Motorola. Taoyuan, Taiwan-based HTC also amended a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington, alleging infringement of three patents first issued to Openwave and two others originally owned by Palm.

Recently, an ITC judge found HTC in violation of two Apple patents which appear to be at the core of Android. At that time HTC told the media that they and Apple "have to sit down and figure it out."

Good! Apple constantly sues companies for no particular reason, it's about time they got a taste from their own medicine. I hope HTC wins!

iPhone 5 doesn't need 4G.. As long as they increase the speed 3G will do just fine (at least in Sweden were we have 32Mbps over 3G).. ;)
