Arizona company Advanced Voice Recognition Systems (AVRS), specializing in software for speech recognition, has filed a lawsuit against Apple.

AVRS обвиняет Apple в нарушении патента

According to the plaintiff, he owns patent No. 7558730 issued by the US patent office, broken voice assistant Apple Siri. This patent relates to speech recognition. Allegedly, Apple was aware of the existence of the patent in 2013 and broke it no less than 77 times.

More specifically, the specified number corresponds to the family of patents. The original patent collection was received in 2001 and it is valid at this point, in 2009.

It is difficult to say which commercial products still use the development of, and used, if at all. The company AVRS calls it owned patents “based business model.” What the outcome of the dispute is still unknown, but Apple is no stranger to accusations of patent infringement.
