U.S. District Court Upholds $368M VirnetX Court Victory Over Apple

A U.S. District Court judge has upheld a November 2012 $368.2 million judgment against Apple in a suit with VirnetX, which found that Apple had infringed the company’s networking patents with its FaceTime video chat app.



As noted early on Wednesday by Seeking Alpha, Judge Leonard Davis found in favor of intellectual property and patent holding firm VirnetX, which claimed that Apple’s FaceTime feature violates VirnetX’s VPN patents. Virnet first filed suit against Apple in November of 2011, claiming that the iPhone 4S infringed on U.S. Patent No. 8,05,181 for a “Method for Establishing Secure Communication Link Between Computers of Virtual Private Network.”

Judge Davis’ ruling awards VirnetX the original amount, and denies Apple’s request for a new trial. The company will also receive a daily award form Apple amounting to $330,211 per day until royalties and additional detials can be settled.

The judge ordered both parties to meet regarding the royalty arrangements, and to reach an agreement within 45 days, or Judge Davis will make a ruling himself.
