Taiwan developer of x86-compatible microprocessors VIA Technologies filed a lawsuit against Group Apple, which claims that the U.S. company violates patents of VIA. Representatives of Taiwanese manufacturers claim that Apple uses controversial developments in the Apple TV, iPad, iPod and iPhone, as well as software that the products work with.
Reported that the patents describe methods of transmission, processing and data management products in the chip. Action on behalf of VIA was made simultaneously in International Trade Commission and the U.S. in American courts.
CEO of VIA Wen Chi Chen said on this occasion that his company intends to defend its interests before all responsible bodies and with all possible legal means.
You’ll recall that earlier claim Apple itself in court against another Taiwanese company – HTC, accusing the latter of infringing two patents belonging to “apples”.
From the moment Apple declined to comment on a claim brought by VIA.
