Creative Technology's wholly owned subsidiary, ZiiLabs, has sued tech giants Samsung Electronics Co and Apple Inc for alleged patent infringement.
ZiiLabs, a leader in media-rich application processors, alleged in the lawsuit that certain products - including various Samsung Galaxy phones, tablets and laptops, as well as Apple iPhones, iPads and computers - have infringed on 10 of its patents. These patents include graphics rendering, video stream data mixing, and graphic memory management.
The lawsuit was filed on Monday in the Eastern district of Texas, with law firms Heim, Payne and Chorush, and Susman Godfrey, acting for ZiiLabs.
