Three out of every five major patent suits involve Apple

Updated 4 years ago

Anyone paying attention to tech industry intellectual property litigation knows that Apple is at the center of many major patent suits. But per Bloomberg, new research from intellectual property consulting firm Kanzatec IP Group shows that Apple is involved in a whopping 60% of all major wireless patent suits filed over the past two years, including disputes with Android device manufacturers HTC, Samsung and Motorola, as well as with Kodak and Elan. Kanzatec senior vice president Feisal Mosleh says that he “would speculate that Apple will continue to be at the center of the litigation map of large mobile IT companies for as long as it maintains its dominant place in the market.”
