Apple Computer faces more lawsuits

In a quick turn of events, Creative Labs, maker of the Zen family of MP3 players, has filed a lawsuit against Apple Computer for the iPod's interface. Despite the iPod's interface being largely the same for several years now, Creative Labs has felt it necessary to sue Apple due to a claim that Apple infringed on its patents.

Creative says that the iPod's graphical user interface is proprietary technology to its Zen MP3 products and that it owns the method in which users browse a portable MP3 device for music. Creative also says that its engineers invented the interface way back in 2000. While Creative says that it has the rights to the user interface for number of years now, the lawsuit refers to this patent here, which is actually dated last year.

Creative is seeking to stop Apple from importing and selling its iPod line of MP3 players. Previously, Apple was sued by Apple Corp., the holding company of The Beatles, for iTunes. Apple was accused of stepping into territory that it had agreed not to get into a few decades ago, but the verdict ruled that Apple did no wrong doing with iTunes.
