Apple Ordered To Pay $502.6 Mln To VirnetX In Patent Fight

Apple Ordered To Pay $502.6 Mln To VirnetX In Patent Fight

It's small change for Apple, but an important win for VirnetX.

Since 2010, Apple has been in a patent fight with Internet security software company VirnetX.

Apple has been found guilty of infringing four different VirnetX patents in the iMessage, FaceTime, and VPN solutions it offers on iPhones and iPads. 7 million to VirnetX for encroaching on the patents of its four technologies apparently used in iOS applications as well as FaceTime. While there will nearly certainly be jubilation at the ruling, Apple has a history of appealing.

The Federal Circuit, which handles all patent appeals, declined to put this trial on hold, saying it was so far along that a verdict would come before a final validity decision. "Tell the truth and you don't have to worry about anything". Later on, the company was ordered by the district court to pay more than United States dollars 400 million as damages to the patent-holding company VirnetX for copyright violations. Apple will likely not give in a pay up, so the battle will likely not end here.

Google employees urge company to drop Pentagon AI work
The NYT report also says that Giannandrea will report directly to CEO Tim Cook as the leader of " machine learning and AI strategy".

The firm initially sought as much as $625.4 million in damages, but the legal battle itself has largely been a spectacle of back-and-forth arguments, with the initial case having been tossed out the door, entirely, and multiple, subsequent cases being filed by VirnetX and Apple, respectively.

This seems like a massive victory for VirnetX, and indeed it would be if Apple is ultimately forced to pay even a portion of the damages awarded in the case.

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board has ruled the patents invalid, which VirnetX is appealing.
