Apple And Siri To Face Lawsuit In China
By Jerry Carrion

As per a recent report, Apple and its voice activated virtual assistant, Siri could be facing a lawsuit in China. A Chinese company is claiming that Siri infringes on their patents, and Shanghai No.1 Intermediate People’s Court will hold a pre-hearing at 2pm today to let Apple and Shanghai Zhi Zhen Internet Technology Co Ltd exchange evidence.

“Siri is very similar to Xiaoi, a chat robot system we have been developing since 2003,” said Mei Li, a spokeswoman of Shanghai Zhi Zhen which filed the lawsuit.

Mei said her company applied for patent rights for Xiaoi in 2004 in China and the patent right went into effect in 2006.

It will be interesting to see what will happen here, as the software produced by Zi Zhen, Xiaoi, which Apple is accused of infringing on has over 100 million users.
