OPTi Initiates Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Apple

Apple is hiring. You don't need any knowledge in computers or technology. A law degree is required however.

Apple is in court fairly often; I'm sure almost everyone is aware of the recent Cisco case. Most people are not so aware of this one though. OPTi Inc. announced today that it had filed a lawsuit on January 16 against Apple Inc. for infringing on three of OPTi's patents (U.S. Patent No. 5,710,906, Patent No. 5,813,036 and Patent No. 6,405, 291). All three patents are part of what OPTi refers to as "Predictive Snooping of Cache Memory for Master-Initiated Accesses." According to OPTi, Apple utilizes the Predictive Snooping technology in its line of Mac servers, desktops and laptop computers. OPTi isn't suing just Apple; the small Mountain View, California-based company is pursuing patent infringement lawsuits with other "unnamed companies" as well.

I'd like to mention that OPTi has a very elaborate website, check it out below.
