Interesting Apple Sued by Shanghai Firm for Allegedly Treading on Patent with Siri


Apple sued by Shanghai firm for allegedly treading on patent with Siri, may say 'ni hao' in court





For all the heat it dishes out elsewhere in the world, Apple has had a hard time catching a break in China -- between having to settle with Proview over the iPad trademark and a recent, smaller dispute over Snow Leopard, it's been primarily on the defensive. The latest rear-guard action is in Shanghai, where Zhi Zhen Internet Technology claims that Siri's voice command charms infringe on a patent used for the Xiao i Robot voice system on phones and the web. We're just hearing about the lawsuit now, but Zhi Zhen insists that it's been long in the making with accusations filed in June and a patent application dating all the way back to 2004. Apple is characteristically silent on how it will tackle the case. We suspect it'll be more than a little eager to fight back in court: in addition to the lawsuit presenting a very conspicuous roadblock to bringing Siri to China with iOS 6, it comes from a company that hasn't been shy about plastering the Siri icon all over its home page.

I simply love these kind of news when Apple gets back a taste of its own medicine........

Yeah, they should have been aloof and played safe with the unexpected success they achieved, but the sad truth is sudden wealth and fame never keeps a man quiet.

That is why today we see the only company which is jumping up and down and screaming is apple, while all global I.T giants who have been consistent with their success since the past 10 years are all simply too busy making technology.

Yup, we all condone killing but when a killer is awarded a death sentence (or killed violently), we(I) rejoice.

I guess the above analogy should calm you down, ,

Despite what the haters over here think, Apple isn't the worst thing to happen to the world.

It's the patent trolls like "Zhi Zhen Internet Technology".. But of course, never mind me.

I think you should Google what a Patent troll exactly is, before making these comments.
