Apple Ordered To Pay $502.6 Mln To VirnetX In Patent Fight

Originally, a court ordered Apple to pay out $625 million for misusing patents for these services, this was appealed, and while the amount has been reduced, Apple has still come out on the losing end.

It's a huge win for VirnetX, which exists mainly to attempt to hoard patents it has no intention of ever using, and then find companies to which it can license those technologies.

Peter Muller decreased its stake in Lakeland Inds Inc (LAKE) by 51.61% based on its latest 2017Q4 regulatory filing with the SEC. Shares repurchase programs are typically a sign that the company's board of directors believes its shares are undervalued.

For VirnetX, the jury verdict in its favor could be a short-lived victory.

Apple has denied that its devices violate VirnetX patents and has battled previous losses.

Apple has lost the latest round of a patent dispute over secure messaging features in its apps that could see the company forced to pay $502m (£354m) in the another twist in an eight year legal battle.

The October ruling related specifically to older Apple devices, while the latest $502.6 million sum covers Apple's newer devices.

Coming off of 4-0 loss to the No. 4 ranked North Scott Lancers, Hauenstein wanted to see some more offense from the River Queens. Muñoz described Villa's serves as "non-returnable", saying: "Her approach to the net was exactly how we have been practicing".

If this feels familiar, it's because we've been here before, and Apple isn't VirnetX's only target. The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington is now reviewing cases in which the Patent Trial and Appeal Board claims the patents in question are in fact invalid. In light of this, VirnetX's market value has risen by 44 percent. It isn't the first time a ruling in the case has gone against Apple. No final decision has been made on this matter, though, and therefore the Federal Circuit refused to delay Apple's case.
