A company called Opti has sued Apple for using its patented technology in the Mac computers:
OPTi filed suit in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas on January 16 alleging that Apple violates three OPTi patents on what it calls "“Predictive Snooping of Cache Memory for Master-Initiated Accesses.”

OPTi says Apple uses its patented predictive snooping technology without permission in its desktop, notebook, and server computers and has asked for a jury trial to settle the dispute.
