Apple Escapes $625.5 Million Patent Damage Ruling - TNW Apple

Apple has another good day in court

Yesterday, U.S. District Judge Leonard Davis agreed with the computing giant, writing:

“Mirror Worlds may have painted an appealing picture for the jury, but it failed to lay a solid foundation sufficient to support important elements it was required to establish under the law.”

Davis also said that “the evidentiary record is insufficient to support the jury’s damage awards” even after the infringement finding had been upheld.

Despite huge revenues in the past year, $625.5 million is a massive amount, even for Apple. The company will be glad to have weathered this patent storm, but it is still engaged in disputes in various courts across the U.S and Europe.
