Apple pierde un proces impotriva HTC in Marea Britanie

15

  Acum cateva luni de zile Apple a intentat la o instanta din Londra un proces impotriva companiei HTC acuzand-o ca ii incalca 4 brevete de inventie care au legatura cu tehnologii pentru touchscreen-uri, plus un brevet de inventie care are legatura cu tehnologia slide to unlock. Astazi respectiva instanta a decis ca HTC nu incalca vreunul dintre brevetele de inventie invocate de catre Apple si desigur ca, cererea de interdictie a vanzarilor terminalelor HTC in Marea Britanie a fost respinsa de catre respectiva instanta.

HTC’s devices don’t infringe four Apple patents for touchscreen technology and three of those patents are invalid, Judge Christopher Floyd said today… While HTC was pleased with the ruling, “we remain disappointed that Apple continues to favor competition in the courtroom over competition in the marketplace,” spokeswoman Andrea Sommer said… In addition to the slide-to-unlock feature, today’s ruling covered Apple’s patents on tools used to scroll through photographs and change alphabets, and software allowing users to touch the screen in two spots simultaneously.

  Desi Apple a pierdut in Londra cu aceste brevete de inventie, se pare ca aceleasi brevete ar urma sa fie utilizate in procese pe care Apple urmeaza sa le intenteze companiei HTC in Germania, insa sansele de reusita par a fi mici, avand in vedere ca ele s-au dovedit deja a fi pierzatoare.
