The latest development in the nearly decade-long war between VernetX and Apple saw the next payout of up to $ 1.1 billion. This is the result of U.S. District Judge Robert Schroeder, who, along with other requests, denied Apple’s request for a new trial.
According to a Reuters report, Judge Schroeder’s decision today could mean that Apple paid Vernatex a total of more than ১ 1 billion for infringing VPN patents – as we reported in December.
In February 2020, the U.S. Federal Court of Appeals rejected the case’s appeal. Then a month later, the Supreme Court awarded Apple VernetX 4 440 million in damages after it rejected an appeal in the case.
For a moment, it seemed like the 8 year plus war was over. However, in October we learned that VernetX believed that a further $ 700 million in সমর্থ 700 million was upheld from Apple.
Naturally, Apple struggled to uphold the ruling that ended today’s decision. Following Judge Schroeder’s ruling, the final amount of interest paid by Apple Virnetex could exceed ১ 1.1 billion after interest and further royalties are extended.
