Patent suits occur more often than the release of new technologies. Now, HTC have filed a suit against Apple in a district court in Florida for apparent patent infringement.
HTC claim that Apple’s MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and iPhone infringe on two patents that concern networks that HTC acquired from HP last year.
At the same time Apple are currently in a patent suit with Samsung and Motorola. Not to forget that NoiseFree recently sued Apple for alleged patent infringement, breach of contract and theft of trade secrets.
It simply seems to be a bid by every company to ensure the other does not pull away in a growingly fierce area of competition.
