Apple Digugat VIA

VIA Technologies, perusahaan produsen chip asal Taiwan, masuk dalam antrian perusahaan yang terlibat perang paten dengan Apple. VIA mengugat Apple terkait pelanggaran hak paten pada produk iPhone, iPad, iPod, produk Apple TV, dan software pada produk besutan Apple.

Adapun hak paten milik VIA yang dilanggar Apple antara lain adalah terkait fungsi mikroprosesor dan proses data di chip.

Gugatan hak paten itu sendiri telah disampikan baik ke United States International Trade Commission (ITC) dan juga ke US District Court of Delaware.

VIA telah membangun portofolio produk Internet dengan lebih dari 5.000 paten sebagai hasil dari investasi yang signifikan di bidang penelitian dan pengembangan teknologi,” kata Wenchi Chen, Chief Executive Officer VIA Technologies, seperti dikutip dari ITP, 27 September 2011.

Untuk itu, kata Chen, kami berupaya untuk melindungi kepentingan kami dan kepentingan pemegang saham jika ada hak paten milik VIA yang dilanggar.

Saat ini, Apple belum bersedia berkomentar terkait gugatan yang diajukan oleh VIA.

Menurut sumber BBC, tindakan yang diambil oleh VIA tersebut ada hubungannya dengan pertikaian antara Apple dan HTC, perusahaan Taiwan lainnya yang memproduksi smartphone dan menjadi kompetitor Apple.

Sebagai informasi, Wenchi Chen, CEO VIA Technology menikah dengan Cher Wang, Presiden Direktur HTC yang juga turut mendirikan perusahaan, baik HTC ataupun VIA. Viva

  1. Please keep my name on the email list. I like to know what is going on and being said even if I do not agree. IMHO the only way to understand what is happening is to read some of each sides rhetoric even though its difficult to do sometimes without throwing up. The truth usually lies somewhere around the middle.

  2. How did you get access to the HELLthcare bill? You must be connected! Wow, this is even worse than I imagined it would be. I got a reply back from my Congressman saying this bill would also add 53 new government agencies as if Obama adding; what is it 32 czars isnt enough? The president is trying to turn our country into an obama-nation (pun intended) Please keep up the good work! Im anxious, (but afraid) to see what the rest (518 pages) has in store.

  3. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks
