Electronic goods production company Maxell will file a lawsuit against Apple for infringement of more than 12 patents related to FaceTime and other features of the technology’s products. This is not the first time that Maxell has tried to sue Apple, with other attempts in the years 2019 and 2020.
As in previous cases, Maxell believes that the Cupertino brand has abused a number of patents that belong to them and seeks compensation for what happened.
Apple is having a tough year in legal terms
Each of the 12 patents described by Maxell counts as an individual complaint in the process, referring to a series of Apple device models that use patented technologies. These devices include several models of iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac computers.
These patents are related to FaceTime and some color balance technologies in camera software from the Californian brand. According to the complainant, Apple has also appropriated location technologies that are registered to Maxell.
Maxell also says that Apple misuses a facial recognition technology present in the Photos application, which allows people to be found in the image library.
Maxell seeks financial compensation
The objective of the process is to obtain compensation for patent infringement and damages caused by loss of revenue and eventual payments of copyrights.
Apple has yet to comment on this allegation, and it is unlikely to do so given its behavior in similar situations.
As is also the case in these situations, Maxell wants Apple to bear all the costs of the process.
