Court upholds $386 million judgment in VirnetX v. Apple
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 @ 10:47am

A US District Court has upheld an earlier judgment which awarded VirnetX over $368 million in its patent infringement lawsuit against Apple, Seeking Alpha reports. Apple has been denied a request for a new trial, and must now moreover pay VirnetX $330,211 per day until royalties and other details are settled. The two parties have 45 days to come to their own royalty agreement before Judge Leonard Davis intervenes.



The case dates back to November 2011, and claims that Apple's FaceTime feature violates VPN concepts owned by VirnetX. In the past, VirnetX has made similar complaints against companies like Cisco and NEC; it has also filed a second lawsuit against Apple, bringing newer hardware into allegations. The iPhone 5, fifth-generation iPod touch, fourth-generation iPad, iPad mini, and newer Mac computers have been implicated.
