Apple is at the centre of 60 per cent of the patent lawsuits in the mobile industry according to according to intellectual-property consulting firm Kanzatec IP Group.

Kanzatec has published an infographic showing who is suing who. You can view a larger version of the graphic, here.

In the best-known cases Apple has filed suits against Samsung, Motorola, HTC and Kodak. In all those cases Apple is being counter sued by the party.

There have also been suits filed against Apple in which Apple isn’t countersuing: Nokia and Elan.

Also featuring in the graphic are Microsoft (suing/being sued by) Motorola, Google v Oracle, Comcast v Sprint, Kodak v RIM.

Kanzatec senior vice president Feisal Mosleh said: “I would speculate that Apple will continue to be at the centre of the litigation map of large mobile IT companies for as long as it maintains its dominant place in the market.”
