Apple Beats Electronics acquisition

Usually when we’re talking about Apple and lawsuits, it involves the Cupertino’s legal battle with Samsung. Things are a bit different today, though, as Apple is facing a new enemy.

Bose is suing Beats Electronics, the company that Apple only recently acquired, over patents related to noise-canceling headphones. Bose says that it’s invested years into research and development on its headphones and that its current products use “at least” 36 patents and applications.

According to the official Bose complaint, the headphones company is asking that the court award it damages to cover for Beats’ alleged infringement.

News of this lawsuit just came out, so there haven’t been any statements from Bose, Beats or Apple issued quite yet. Considering Apple’s purchase of Beats and the fact that this battle is over headphones and not smartphones, it’s going to be pretty interesting to see how this whole thing plays out.

I’ll be sure to update you on any new information on this matter that emerges. Until then, you can hit up the link below for Bose’s full complaint.
