Digital music player maker Creative Technology has asked a US court to ban Apple from selling or marketing its iconic iPods in the US.
Creative claims that the navigational menu used for finding and playing music on the iPod, violates its patent for its own Zen MP3 player.
It applied for the patent in 2001 which was granted in August 2005. Since then it has been threatening legal action. The complaint was lodged at the San Francisco district court.
