July 31, 2012 - The National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan sued Apple for patent infringement, claiming that the iPhone's Siri speech recognition feature infringes two of its U.S. patents on speech-to-text technology.

National Cheng Kung filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas because "it processes faster and its rulings are usually in favor of patent owners and the compensations are usually higher," according to National Cheng Kung's legal manager Yama Chen.

The university is also considering similar lawsuits against Google and Microsoft.
