Apple is expected to appeal the decision.

VirnetX response is just in: "We are grateful to the jury for their service and for investing the time to listen to our story and we were thrilled to be able to finally tell it. The mountain of evidence presented during the trail showed that Apple s copying went far deeper than even we knew. The lawsuits between VirnetX and Apple were about much more than patents or money. They were about values. At VirnetX we value originality and innovation and pour our lives into making the best products on earth. We make these products to delight our customers, not for our competitors to flagrantly copy. We applaud the court for finding Apple's behavior willful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn’t right."

Why are companies like this even allowed to exist?

This is a patent holding company. Meaning that they buy patents and sue to make a living. I bet this gets overturned. And to the guy ripping apple under multiple names, get a life you fking troll. Clearly you like apple or you would have never come to an apple news and rumors site maggot.
