Is Apple getting karma’d from its patent trolling ways? Looks like it is!

After paying Taiwan-based display manufacturer Proview Electronics a cool $60 million in settlement over the iPad trademark, and getting sued by a Chinese company over the use of “Snow Leopard” trademark, a Shanghai-based firm claims that Apple’s Siri voice command has infringed its patent dating back in 2004.

Zhi Zhen Internet Technology claims that Siri infringes on a patent used for the company’s Xiao i Robot voice system on mobile phones and the Web. The company insists that it does not ride the coattails of previous lawsuits against Apple in China, as it has been planning to sue the Apple and finally filed the complaint in June.

Apple representatives refuse to comment on how it will tackle the case, but we can say that the company will duke it out in court. After all, Zhi Zhen is shameless in using the Siri icon in its home page.
