Apple’s Siri and Google’s Voice Input violating a patent?

25 Apr

Today, out of nowhere a suit was filed against practicably every mobile device manufacturer on the face of the planet. Those included are Google, Apple, Microsoft, HTC, Samsung, Sony, and Motorola. The reason behind it? Voice input.

A little known firm called Potter Voice Technologies LLC has filed suit with the District Court of Colorado claiming that the companies infringed on their patent for a “Method And Apparatus For Controlling A Digital Computer Using Oral Input” (Patent Number 5,729,659).

The full copy of the complaint: 91264687-Potter-Voice-v-Apple-Et-Al
