A Taiwanese university has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple, claiming that Siri infringes on two of its patents.
The National Cheng Kung University claims that Siri infringes on one patent for a speech recognition system and another for a method and system that matches speech data.
"As a result of Apple's infringement ... NCKU has suffered monetary damages in an amount not yet determined, and will continue to suffer damages in the future unless Apple's infringing activities are enjoined by this court," the university says, according to PCMag.

The university is seeking a permanent injunction against Apple along with costs and damages. It says it filed in 2005 for the speech-data matching patent, which it received in 2010, and the speech-recognition patent in 2002, which it received in 2007.
This is not the first time Apple has been sued for its Siri software. Earlier this month, Apple also was sued by a Chinese company for an alleged patent infringement because of Siri.
And earlier this year, an American man filed a lawsuit against the Cupertino company, saying its advertisements for Siri are "fundamentally and designedly false and misleading."
Apple purchased Siri in 2010 and launched it with the iPhone 4S last October. The iPad will receive Siri later this year.
The lawsuit was filed in a federal district court in Texas.
