Apple Sued Again In China

Apple is being sued again in China, this time its over an apparent Siri patent infringement. The company also claims that it filed a complaint with Apple but the company has ignored it. Now that doesn't sound like something Apple would do, does it? big grin

Zhi Zhen Internet Technology holds a patent for a Chinese language voice system that is used on its Xiao i service. It claims that it issued a complaint to Apple in May but did not receive a response. A company spokesman also added that the Chinese tech company had applied for its patent as far back as 2004, with the lawsuit filed as a way to stop Apple from infringing on its technology and force it to bear all costs associated with its litigation.
