The legal battle began in 2020 when Sonos accused Google of copying a proprietary technology they originally collaborated on in 2013. Sonos won the US International Trade Commission lawsuit that resulted in a limited import ban on some Google devices and the removal of some features from Google smart speakers and displays.
Last year, Google filed a lawsuit against Sonos for alleged infringement of rights to its smart speakers and voice control technology. At a recent hearing, a jury ruled that the Google Home app did not infringe a separate Sonos patent.
