US court: Apple patent case of 625 million dollars should again




A federal court of appeal decided that the imposed amount of 625 million dollars, converted approximately 560 million that Apple had to pay VirnetX for violating patents need not be paid and that the case of need.

As a result of the ruling plummeted from VirnetX prompt by 44 percent. The reason for invalidating the earlier judgment is that the judge “unfair” found that two VirnetX lawsuits were combined into a single case, writes Reuters. Both issues need to be done separately on each other. The first case is on September 26.

The case in February went to several patents that Apple infringes according VirnetX by making use of Apple’s VPN on Demand, FaceTime and iMessage features. The central theme of the patents is to set up secure communications and networking.

VirnetX is a patent holder who already earns revenue from the possession of patents. CEO Kendall Larsen VirnetX says he is “disappointed.” VirnetX has earned several cases in the past. The patent troll won a case against Microsoft which gave the company $ 200 million through a settlement.

In an earlier lawsuit in 2012 against Apple VirnetX demanded $ 368 million plus a percentage of sales of iPhones and iPads in connection with the Always function. It won the case, but it was dismissed on appeal in 2013.
