One-E-Way lawsuit claims Apple, Beats device violate its patents

Another day, another lawsuit. As noted by AppleInsider, hardware vendor One-E-Way claims multiple Apple and Beats devices infringe on a family of patents covering wireless audio systems.

Lodged with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on Thursday, One-E-Way’s suit alleges Apple and Beats products, including AirPods and PowerBeats models, incorporate technology protected by a family of patents dating back to 2001.

One-E-Way is an electronic products design and manufacturing Delaware Corporation with offices in Pasadena, California. Established in 2004 the company says it’s “committed to meeting the electronic needs of today’s mobile society by leveraging cutting edge technology with the objective of becoming a major participant in the wireless industry, targeting cross platform wireless business opportunities.”

The company has eight issued US patents. One-E-Way seeks royalties, interest and court fees in its case.
