Apple Ordered to Pay VirnetX $368 Million for Patent Infringement
A federal jury in Texas has ordered Apple to pay VirnetX, a patent holding company, $368 million for patent infringement, reports AllThingsD.
VirnetX also has filed complaints with the U.S. International Trade Commission against Apple, alleging that its iPhone, iPad and Mac products violate the company’s patents. In addition, the company has cases pending against Cisco, Avaya and Siemens, with those cases set for trial in March 2013.
Apple is expected to appeal the decision.
