HTC now suing Apple over patents of iPad, iPod, iPhone, and Mac

HTC LogoHTC has filed a lawsuit against Apple in Delaware and seeks to stop importation and sale of their infringing products. The suit hits almost all of Apple’s products including but not limited to iPad, iPod, iPhone, and Macintosh computers.

The complaint stems from Apples attempt to accuse HTC of patent infringement on its smartphones. The news of the lawsuit against Apple comes right after Google announces its decision to purchase Motorola Mobility for $12.5 Billion to gain more control over the Android market and its hardware.

HTC obtained patents in 2008 and 2010 and those are the ones that they believe Apple is infringing on. Patent numbers #7,765,414, #7,672,219 and #7,417,944 are in dispute at the current time.

These patents cover multipoint-to-point communication using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing and a method for orderwire modulation, whatever that means. These patents apparently cover almost all Apple products.
