Apple sued over patents by HTC
New York, August 16, 2011
Smartphone maker HTC sued Apple on Tuesday, claiming infringement of three patents through Apple's sale of Macintosh computers, iPhones, iPads and other devices.
The lawsuit filed in US District Court in Delaware seeks to halt Apple's importation and sale of infringing products in the United States. It also seeks compensatory damages, triple damages for willful infringement, and other remedies.
HTC's lawsuit follows legal action by Apple accusing the Taiwan-based company of patent infringements by its smartphones.
Neither company was immediately available for comment. - Reuters
