Florian Mueller reports for FOSS Patents, “HTC’s new assertions against Apple are spread out over three different filings.”
• HTC amended its recent (second) ITC complaint against Apple by throwing in five additional patents (the original one related to three patents),
• amended its companion lawsuit in Delaware accordingly, and
• filed a completely new lawsuit in Delaware over four other patents.
Mueller reports, “I’m sure Apple always knew that Google might give patents to embattled Android device makers. That didn’t prevent Apple from enforcing its rights in the first place. It won’t make Apple back down now. There’s too much at stake for that, and it’s easier to file lawsuits than to win them.”
