Apple Suing HTC For 20 iPhone Patent Infringements

I wanted to break this to all our readers, but wanted to make sure that you knew that we are only just learning about this and have not gone over all of it yet. But Apple has files suit against HTC for 20 iPhone Patent infringements! According to Gizmodo: “Apple’s asking for a permanent injunction, which would bar HTC from importing or selling phones here that use these patents, along with triple damages with maximum interest (read: a lot of money).”

As Gizmodo states, all of the 20 patent infringements have nothing to do with Multi-Touch but a host of other things like:

  • "Time-Based, Non-Constant Translation Of User Interface Objects Between States,"
  • "Touch Screen Device, Method, And Graphical User Interface For Determining Commands By Applying Heuristics,"
  • "Unlocking A Device By Performing Gestures On An Unlock Image,"
  • "List Scrolling And Document Translation, Scaling, And Rotation On A Touch-Screen Display,"
  • "System And Method For Managing Power Conditions Within A Digital Camera Device,"
  • "Automated Response To And Sensing Of User Activity In Portable Devices,"
  • "Automated Response To And Sensing Of User Activity In Portable Devices,"
  • "Conserving Power By Reducing Voltage Supplied To An Instruction-Processing Portion Of A Processor,"
  • "Object-Oriented Graphic System,"
  • "Object-Oriented Event Notification System With Listener Registration Of Both Interests And Methods,"

The full filing can be found at Gizmodo and like I said, we are looking into it now and will comment more on it as well as we look through everything. Stay tuned and we will bring you more on this.
