Apple got slapped with a patent infringement lawsuit by Parus Holdings. This is the second one from Parus against the iPhone maker alleging that the latter infringed on its patents for voice-browsing and device control technology.
The lawsuit against Apple alleges that the computer company infringed on its U.S. Patent Nos. 6,721,705 and 8,185,402 for voice-browsing and device control technology. Damages cited by Parus against Apple include infringing sales. According to the lawsuit, the infringement has been "willful."
Parus requested that Apple be ordered to pay treble damages and Parus' attorneys' fees, and be permanently prohibited from infringing its patents.
In July 2019, Parus filed three patent infringement lawsuits in the Western District of Texas against Apple, Samsung Electronics, and Alphabet’s Google regarding its U.S. patents 9,451,084 and 7,076,431 for voice-user interface technologies. The company also filed a lawsuit against LG Electronics in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
