Apple's A4 and A5 processors targeted in a new lawsuit filed by Via

According to a Bloomberg report, well-known motherboard and chipset manufacturer Via has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple. Filed in Delaware Federal court, the complaint accuses Apple of infringing three US patents that cover microprocessor technology used in smartphones and tablets. Presumably, this lawsuit is targeting Apple's A4 and A5 processor used in the iPhone 4, iPad and the iPod touch. The Taiwanese manufacturer is asking for an injunction against Apple products containing these microprocessors and a jury trial. Apple, as expected, has not commented on this latest lawsuit.

Apple's A4 and A5 processors targeted in a new lawsuit filed by Via originally appeared on TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Fri, 23 Sep 2011 09:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

Patents have been infringed, but not copied....same old same old.

I think they maybe do this to try and discredit the brand and of course the trading shares take a dive. That's all these are filed for.

Similar to the law courts i would guess, try to discredit the witness before they give evidence which then provides elements of doubt, regardless of validity.

but then again, I'm no solicitor.
