VIA try to stop Apple selling the iPad and iPhone: patent dispute

Apple have been involved in a lot of legal action in the last couple of months, noticeably with Samsung. The latest news to hit involves VIA, who are suing Apple for infringing on three patents which are associated with the microprocessors used in their iPhone and iPad.

VIA have applied for a jury trial and also an order to prevent Apple from selling products containing the alleged patents in the United States, which is a very strong base for their products.
