Sonos Continues To Battle Google Over Patents

Santa Barbara-based smart speaker manufacturer Sonos is continuing to battle Google over patents, asking the U.S. International Trade Commission this week to reject a judge's blessing of a software design change to avoid infringing on Sonos patents. Sonos called the Google changes "half-baked" and "trivial". Sonos sued Google in January of 2020, alleging patent infringement on a number of its patents, as Google's smart speakers have cut into Sonos sales.
