weeks of saber rattling Seagate finally took its grudge against SSD makers to court. The company filed a patent-infringement suit suite against SSD maker STEC in the U.S. District Court in San Francisco.
Seagate accuses STEC of infringing four patents owned by Seagate and Maxtor. It is looking for an injunction to prevent STEC from using the patents and seeking unspecified damages.
STEC is the first SSD maker sued by Seagate, but if the company makes good on its promise to go after SSD makers using its patents, it probably won't be the last.
