Apple has filed a lawsuit against Sanho Corporation, maker of the HyperMac line of external battery accessories, alleging patent violations related to Apple’s proprietary MagSafe and 30-pin Dock Connector cables. AppleInsider reports that the suit, filed earlier this month, names the HyperMac Nano, HyperMac Micro, and HyperMac Mini products for the iPod and iPhone. “Defendants manufacture, distribute, and/or sell products that infringe patents related to Apple’s proprietary MagSafe connectors used to connect power adapters and other products to Apple portable computers, such as the MacBook,” the suit reads. “Defendants also manufacture, distribute and/or sell products that infringe patents related to Apple’s 30-pin connectors and receptacles , used to connect cables to Apple iPod, iPhone and/or iPad products.” The suit seeks “an award of its actual damages, disgorgement of Defendants’ profits from the sale of infringing devices and injunctive relief.”
