Court throws out $368.2 million patent award against Apple
A U.S. appeals court has thrown out a US$368.2 million award against Apple in a patent infringement case brought by patent-holding and software company VirnetX.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on Tuesday declined to invalidate VirnetX’s four Internet security-related patents, but ruled that Apple’s VPN On Demand service did not infringe one of the Nevada firm’s patents. The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas also erred in defining the value of the patented technology related to secure communications links in two patents, and should reexamine whether Apple’s FaceTime application infringes the two patents under a correct claim construction, the appeals court ruled.
