Apple gets taken to court over infringements again
OPTi Inc. today announced that it has
filed a lawsuit against Apple Inc. for patent infringement
. According to OPTi, Apple infringed on not just one but three patents. All three patents are part of what OPTi refers to as "Predictive Snooping of Cache Memory for Master-Initiated Accesses." Apple appears to have infringed on three patents in that family: U.S. Patent No.
, Patent No.
and Patent No.
According to OPTi, Apple infringed on the above patents by utilizing Predictive Snooping technology in its line of Mac servers, desktops and laptop computers. OPTi is currently waiting on a jury trial with Apple and is pursing patent infringement lawsuits with other unnamed companies as well.
So far in 2007, Apple has been met with more than one lawsuit.
Cisco recently filed a lawsuit against Apple
for trademark infringement of the "iPhone" trade name. Having trademarked "iPhone" many years before the
actual Apple iPhone
was conceived, Cisco said it is protecting its intellectual property rights. Cisco's consumer arm
Linksys released its own iPhone several weeks prior
Apple defended itself by claiming that Cisco's lawsuit was "tenuous at best," and it believes it will come out of the case with a victory. Despite Apple's optimistic outlook, analysts and legal experts believe that Cisco will win a straight forward case.
