HTC sues Apple over patents

The lawsuit filed in US District Court in Delaware seeks to halt Apple’s importation and sale of infringing products in the US. It also seeks compensatory damages, triple damages for willful infringement and other remedies.

Tuesday’s complaint escalates the legal battle between the companies. Apple has accused HTC of patent infringement through its smartphones, and filed several patent lawsuits against the Taiwan-based company in Delaware in the last two years. According to its complaint, HTC obtained the patents that it believes Apple is infringing in 2008 and 2010.
