VirnetX shares surge as jury says Apple infringed patents

VirnetX shares surge as jury says Apple infringed patents

According to Bloomberg, which earlier reported on the verdict, VirnetX is entitled to $502.6 million in damages for the alleged infringement. VirnetX claimed that features in Apple's FaceTime, VPN on Demand, and iMessage infringes upon these patents. The case isn't dead yet though, the U.S. legal system has plenty of room for additional appeals and Apple is exploring those options already. "The evidence was clear", Kendall Larsen said to reporters following the announcement of the verdict.

The dispute has bounced between the district court, patent office and Federal Circuit since 2010.

Reports claim that the legal battle between Apple includes many legal suits and a myriad number of appeals. We don't know if this decision will stick since the Patent Trial and Appeal Board has already invalidated the patents involved in this case far before the Texas court handed down the verdict.

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.

A few months later, a federal jury in Texas ordered Apple to pay up again, but this time in total amount of $302.4 million. 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. That's because PTAB believes VirnetX's patents are invalid even for cases now in progress.
