Quoting Gizmochina, Monday (13/5/2024), Microsoft's Cortana virtual assistant is suspected of violating a patent belonging to IPA Technologies.

This decision was taken after a week-long trial, focusing on voice recognition technology in Cortana.

This lawsuit was filed in 2018 claiming that Cortana violates IPA patents for voice recognition technology used in communications software on Windows PCs or laptops.

Initially, this case involved several IPA patents. However, in the end, this lawsuit focused on just one thing.

Regarding this, a Microsoft spokesperson argued that they did not infringe and that the patent itself was invalid.

IPA itself is a subsidiary of Wi-LAN (owned jointly by Quarterhill and two other investment companies), obtaining patents from Siri Inc. from SRI International.

Regarding this lawsuit, Microsoft plans to file an appeal. This is not the first time IPA has filed a lawsuit.
