HP sued Gateway in March 2004, alleging the smaller company had violated six of its patents covering power management, keyboard-password functions and cursor-generation, among other technologies.
Gateway countersued the following May, alleging HP had infringed five of its patents. In the same month, HP filed a complaint with the ITC requesting it find Gateway guilty of infringing seven of its patents and that it ban the importation into the US of allegedly infringing kit.
