Highlights

  • Australian tech investment firm – Charter Pacific Corporation won against Apple in a legal battle. 
  • CPC dragged Apple to the US and Australian courts.
  • CPC claimed that the tech giant’s Face ID and Touch ID breached biometric patents.

An Australian tech investment firm – Charter Pacific Corporation’s (CPC) subsidiary CPC Patent Technologies has won a legal battle against Apple it. The tech giant failed to get a patent infringement lawsuit dismissed, for which CPC dragged Apple to both Australian and USA courts. 

CPC claimed that the tech giant’s Face ID and Touch ID breached biometric patents. As a result, the US district court judge Alan Albright denied Apple’s call for two out of three claims made by CPC, leaving one that involved smart wallets.

However, Apple requested to ignore all the three alleged patent infringements that the Aussie company brought last year.

According to a media report, Albright found CPC’s submissions were against the motion to dismiss a feasible infringement claim. The judge has instructed the Australian company to include all the points made against the opposition, after which CPC can process all its infringement claims against Apple.

Bottomline

Earlier, CPC also faced allegations of patent trolling. However, the chief executive pointed to the commercialisation of its US patents.
