Apple Wins Patent Appeal in China

Apple has won an appeal in China over patent rights to voice recognition software such as Siri, with a court overruling an earlier decision that had gone against the US tech giant. The legal battle begun in 2012 when Shanghai-based Zhizhen Network Technology pursued Apple for allegedly infringing its Chinese patent with Siri, its 'intelligent personal assistant'. Apple asked a Chinese intellectual property body to declare Zhizhen's original patent ineffective but the request was rejected. The Beijing Higher People's Court upheld Apple's appeal, ordering the Chinese agency to reverse its decision. Zhizhen filed a lawsuit against Apple for intellectual property rights infringement in June 2012 at a court in Shanghai, where the Chinese firm is based.
