Apple and THX Look to Resolve Speaker Patent Suit Outside of Court
Lawyers for both Apple and THX are currently working to resolve a patent lawsuit between the two companies without the matter having to head to court. The dispute in question originally stems from THX’s decision to sue Apple in March of this year over infringement on U.S. Patent No. 7,433,483. While the suit is scheduled to begin the case-management process on June 14, Bloomberg is reporting that attorneys for the two companies have requested to postpone that hearing until June 26.
The filing mentioned the following:
The parties are currently attempting to resolve this matter outside of this litigation.
According to THX, Apple’s infringement caused it “monetary damage and irreparable harm” with the company seeking a court order to stop the infringement and secure a reasonable royalty as well as damages to compensate for lost profit. We’ll have to wait and see if the two are able to reach a decision or whether the patent struggle between the two will continue.
