The decision was delivered after the Beijing Intermediate People’s Court ruled against Apple in July 2014.
The case began in June 2012 when Zhizhen accused Apple of patent infringement of its voice recognition technology Xiao i Robot that is employed across Android.
Xiao i Robot was developed in 2003, which uses a type of instant messaging chat robot system.
But Apple sued the Patent Review Committee under the State Intellectual Property Office and Shanghai Zhizhen Network Technology, accusing Zhizhen of infringing the copyright of its voice recognition software Siri.
Siri launched with the iPhone 4S in 2011. The technology was developed in 2007 by Siri, a start-up and acquired by Apple in 2010.
No verdict was given after trials began at a Shanghai court in 2013. Apple applied to the Patent Review Committee under SIPO to invalidate the Xiao i Robot, but it sided with Zhizhen. Apple only then sued the agency and Zhizhen.
