Apple has launched a new complaint against HTC, one of the company's competitors that makes a wide range of different smartphones.
Apple went to the US International Trade Commission (ITC) with patent claims of technology used in the iPad and iPhone, and hopes to block the import of HTC products into the United States.
HTC, on the other hand, doesn't see why Apple should resort to such tactics. In fact, HTC's general counsel went as far to say that Apple should spend less on its lawyers and more on competing with the Taiwanese company.
"HTC is disappointed at Apple's constant attempts at litigations instead of competing fairly in the market," said HTC general counsel Grace Lei in a statement, according to the AFP.
"HTC strongly denies all infringement claims raised by Apple in the past and present and reiterates our determination and commitment to protect our intellectual property rights," she said.
