California Jury Finds Sophos Infringed Finjan Patents in $15M Verdict

September 23, 2016

A California jury has issued a verdict against Sophos, finding on September 21 that the company’s security software infringes five anti-malware patents (6,154,844; 6,804,7807,613,926; 8,141,154; 8,677,494) asserted by Finjan, Inc. (3:14-cv-01197). However, while the jury awarded Finjan $15M in damages, it also determined that Sophos had not willfully infringed the patents-in-suit. The jury’s decision follows the July denial of a motion by campaign co-defendant Blue Coat Systems to overturn a $39.5M verdict against the company in another suit brought by Finjan (5:13-cv-03999).
