Apple, THX in talks to resolve speaker patent lawsuit
Apple and THX are in talks to solve <a href="">a lawsuit brought by the latter party over a speaker technology patent</a>, new court documents reveal. Lawyers for both sides have filed a petition with the federal court in San Francisco to move a June 14th case-management conference to July 26th. "The parties are currently attempting to resolve this matter outside of this litigation," the filing <a href="">reads</a>. <br /><br />THX owns a 2008 patent on a unit that can boost sound output and attaches to computers and TVs. The company alleges that a form of the technology is used in iPhones, iPads, and iMacs.<br />
<br />
Apple may be eager to settle given a number of ongoing legal disputes. The ITC recently <A href=" 4.ipad.2.older.models/">imposed a ban on some older iOS devices</a>, and the company is still dealing with a host of civil lawsuits involving parties like Motorola and Samsung, some of which it instigated.
