Whether it’s suing or being sued Apple can’t seem to stay out of the court room.

The drama continues as Corephotonics files a patent infringement lawsuit alleging that Apple is using their dual-zoom technology in iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus.

Corephotonics is an Israeli-based company founded in 2012 by Dr. David Medlovic. In the past few years, Corephotonics has raised $50 million from high-profile investors such as Foxconn and MediaTek.

Apple had been trying out Corephotonics dual-zoom tech in 2015 but ended up purchasing the intellectual rights to a competing company, LinX. Interestingly, LinX is also an Israeli-based company.

Many feel that the case is simply one of Corephotonics simply being bitter due to not being chosen over LinX.

But, according to Corephotonics, “As one of its first acts as a company, Corephotonics reached out to Apple in the hopes of establishing a strategic partnership. Corephotonics received many encouraging reports and positive feedback from Apple about its technology, but the parties never concluded a license to the Corephotonics technology.

In fact, after one failed effort to negotiate a license, Apple’s lead negotiator expressed contempt for Corephotonics’ patents, telling Dr. Mendlovic and others that even if Apple infringed, it would take years and millions of dollars in litigation before Apple might have to pay something.”

Corephotonics is represented by Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, which is the firm that also represents Samsung in their cases against apple.
