Every other day, we get to hear about a new patent lawsuit, and most of them are directed towards Apple. It’s either Apple suing someone, or someone suing them. The fruit company is currently fighting lawsuits against Samsung, Nokia, HTC and many more.
According to an intellectual-property consulting firm called Kanzatec IP Group, Apple is directly or indirectly involved in at least 60 percent of all the mobile lawsuits that took place in the last two years. Feisal Mosleh, a senior vice president at Kanzatec said:
“I would speculate that Apple will continue to be at the center of the litigation map of large mobile IT companies for as long as it maintains its dominant place in the market,”
The company has gained a lot in the last 2-3 years and is also the biggest company in the world, in terms of market share. Hence, it is a direct target for any small or competitive company. The Samsung vs Apple patent wars are still at large, so is the Apple vs HTC war. Recently, Apple was sued by a company in the U.S, who claimed that Apple had stolen their noise reduction technology. Apple recently paid about $60 million as settlement to Proview, a Chinese company who stated that the iPad trademark belonged to them!
