Apple Sues HTC Over Patent Infringement

Apple Sues HTC Over Patent Infringement

The world of portable electronics is a fast paced one where developments and improvements are a must to survive due to the fierce competition. The alternative approach of constant improvement to be on top of your rivals is to try to crush the competitor. As it turned out, Apple decided to take the latter approach and attack device manufacturer HTC for patent infringement. They claim that HTC has copied their technology and has filed about 20 complaints to the ITC (International Trade Commission) as well as the US District Court in Delaware.

Some of the complaints are

Count 1 – Patent 7,362,331 – “Time-Based, Non-Constant Translation Of User Interface Objects Between States”
Count 2 – Patent 7,479,949 – “Touch Screen Device, Method And Graphical User Interface For Determining Commands By Applying Heuristics”

Count 3 – Patent 7,657,849 – “Unlocking A Device By Performing Gestures On An Unlock Image”

Count 4 – Patent 7,469,381 – “List Scrolling And Document Translation, Scaling And Rotation On A Touch Screen Display”

Count 5 – Patent 5,920,726 – “System And Method For Managing Power Conditions Within A Digital Camera Device”

Count 6 – Patent 7,633,076 – “Automated Response To And Sensing Of User Activity In Portable Devices”

Count 7 – Patent 5,848,105 – “GMSK Signal Processors For Improved Communications Capacity And Quality”

Count 8 – Patent 7,383,453 – “Conserving Power By Reducing Voltage Supplied To An Instruction Processing Portion Of A Processor”

Count 9 – Patent 5,455,599 – “Object-Oriented Graphic System”

Count 10 – Patent 6,424,354 – “Object-Oriented Event Notification System With Listener Registration Of Both Interests And Methods”
