Primary smartphone manufacturer of Taiwan HTC released new copyright violation claims by US huge Apple as the official fight among the competitors rose.
Apple filed a protest versus HTC with the US International Trade Commission (ITC) which is by now reviewed three other arguments among the two or five cases connected to technology used in the iPad and iPhone.
It has as well wedged a suit in a US District Court in Delaware.
Grace Lei, HTC general counsel said, “HTC is disappointed at Apple’s constant attempts at litigations instead of competing fairly in the market.”
She said, “HTC strongly denies all infringement claims raised by Apple in the past and present and reiterates our determination and commitment to protect our intellectual property rights.”
HTC advertizes its own brand of smartphones and as well creates handsets for a quantity of leading US companies, counting the Nexus One revealed by Apple opponent Google.
In March 2010, Apple called on the ITC to look into the Taiwan Company over iPhone copyrights. It was pursued months shortly by HTC filing for a search into probable software copyright misuse by the California-based firm.
Copyright lawsuits are a normal event among technology giants and Apple is presently being prosecuted by Nokia for copyright violation. Apple has fired back a countersuit versus the Finnish mobile phone giant.
Apple hit back in the previous week at an infringement claim by Samsung by calling for the South Korean company to be inspected.
