Jury Returns $625M Infringement Verdict in VirnetX v. Apple
- February 9, 2016
Last week, a Texas jury handed down a $625.6M verdict in VirnetX’s 2012 lawsuit against Apple (6:12-cv-00855). The jury found that the company’s FaceTime and iMessage features infringe two secure networking patents (7,418,504; 7,921,211) and that the latest version of its VPN On Demand feature infringes two other patents from the same family (6,502,135; 7,490,151). The February 3 verdict also included a determination of $334.9M in royalties based on a partially vacated jury decision from VirnetX’s first case against Apple, which found that a previous version of the VPN On Demand feature also infringed the same two patents.
