Apple ordered to pay $502.6 million in patent infringement case

Apple ordered to pay patent troll more than $500 million in iMessage case

A federal court in the state of Texas has reportedly asked Apple Inc.to pay almost Dollars 502.6 million to patent troll VirnetX, for the infringement of its four patents associated with secure internet communications.

Over two years ago, VirnetX announced that it was seeking $532 million in damages from Apple over patent infringements relating to iMessage, FaceTime, and VPN technologies.

Karnataka assembly elections 2018: BJP first list of candidates revealed
The meeting discussed the names of probable candidates for rest of the seats in the 225-member state Assembly. She said that the party will release the candidates list by April 15-16.

Since 2010, Apple has been in a patent fight with Internet security software company VirnetX. VirnetX is based in Zephyr Cove, Nevada, and it filed its suit in patent troll-friendly East Texas, a district where patent holders have had a higher chance of success in intellectual property cases until the Supreme Court cracked down on the practice past year. It's small change for Apple, but an important win for VirnetX. It isn't the first time a ruling in the case has gone against Apple.

In 2017 however, Apple filed an appeal against the USA district court verdict, though it lost the case.

Bayer bid to buy Monsanto wins US DoJ approval
The company's shares were given away at $122 per share worth to an income of some $527,040 on account of Courduroux Pierre . Several analysts have released their opinion on Monsanto Company (NYSE:MON), with 3 analysts believing it is a strong buy.

Kendall Larsen, CEO of VirnetX, said the damages, which were based on sales of more than 400 million Apple devices, were "fair".

"The Patent Trial and Appeal Board has said the patents are invalid, in cases that are now before the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, "Bloomberg reported". It doesn't seem certain the company will ever see that $502.6 million payout, though. That verdict was thrown out by the judge, who didn't approve of VirnetX lawyers' references to the 2012 trial. But it has been speculated that the decision is likely to be scrapped as the Patent Trial & Appeal Board has claimed the patents under investigation to be invalid.
