Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC) has filed another suit against Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd (TSMC) "over alleged unfair competition," according to a Reuters report.

The suit, filed in the High Court in Beijing, claims TSMC has "intentionally disseminated untrue and misleading statements to damage SMIC's reputation and goodwill."

In August TSMC once again filed a patent and trade-secret suit against SMIC. The suit alleges "breach of an agreement" over a settlement in a patent suit filed back in 2005.

Then, in September this year, SMIC filed a counterclaim against TSMC in a court in the United States.
