California Jury Issues Partial Infringement Verdict Against Blue Coat Systems in Finjan’s International Anti-Malware Campaign

November 21, 2017

A jury in the Northern District of California has found that Symantec subsidiary Blue Coat Systems infringed two out of six anti-malware patents at issue in a suit brought by Finjan, Inc., following a three-week trial (5:15-cv-03295). In a verdict issued on November 20, the jury declined to find that Blue Coat’s infringement of those two patents had been willful and found that the defendant had not infringed any patents under the doctrine of equivalents, also awarding $490K in damages. The jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict for another two of the asserted patents.
