VIA sues Apple for patent infringement

Written by Fudzilla staff


Everyone is doing it…
Plucky Taiwanese chipmaker VIA Technologies is suing Apple for patent infringement, alleging that the fruity toymaker nicked some of its ideas and applied them in iPad 2 and iPhone 4 products.

The suit centers on two patents dealing with processor load sharing methods and instruction sets for conversion of integer and floating point data. VIA’s subsidiaries CenTaur Technology and IP First LLC are also on board the suit.

VIA alleges that Apple’s infringement was willful, which could result in high damage claims. In the meantime VIA is seeking to ban the import of iPads, iPhone 4, iPod touch and Apple TV products into the United States.

Nobody from Taiwan or China has any business suing anybody for anything, especially patent infringement! :D

I said months ago that Apple suing Samsung will backfire but I must admit I under estimated the amount it would. It's great to see soon Mr. Jobs has to crawl back and give an official apology

Taste your own medicine... I like VIA ^_^

If not because of Intel, VIA is makes third option for cpu but now VIA is limited to very few most likely in Chinese and few places.

The mighty ivory tower of Apple begins to crumble.

Seriously did apple expect to be able to sue every one and get away with it.

Actually it's kind of good to see the other Asian chip makes getting scrappy and pushing back against Apple. I don't know what smug tastes like, but I'm starting to think it tastes like a rotten apple...
