Apple accused of stealing ZiiLabs patents

VR Zone reports Creative's ZiiLabs subsidiary accuses Apple of stealing some of its patents after a series of confidential meetings between the two companies in 2006-2007 where ZiiLabs briefed Apple exces on the patents.
When Apple was in the last steps of designing the iPhone representatives of the company met with 3DLabs — the predecessor to Creative subsidiary ZiiLabs — to discuss the potential use and licensing of its media processor technology and other intellectual property. Apple, with full knowledge of the patents 3DLabs’ presented to the company that now are the basis for a lawsuit between the two companies, chose to infringe upon the patents in the development of the iPhone as well as Mac desktops and laptops, according to a court filing by ZiiLabs.

ZiiLabs filed a suit against Apple and Samsung this week alleging that the two are infringing upon a roster of its mobile related patents. ZiiLabs alleges that Apple’s iPhones, Macbooks and Mac Pros infringe upon its patents, as well as virtually every Samsung mobile device made in the last five years. The full list of the patents involved in the suit can be found here in VR-Zone’s earlier coverage of the case.
