Apple ordered to pay $506 million for A-series processors patent infringement

Apple ordered to pay $506 million for A-series processors patent infringement

And all of this is about technology utilized from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

This has unlikely gone down well at Apple, as the $506m fine is almost double the $234 million in damages that a Jury ordered Apple to pay back in 2015. In 2015, a jury awarded WARF $234 million. Apple also urged the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to review the patent's validity but the agency rejected that bid. Not only is the company embroiled in a legal battle with Qualcomm that could see a ban placed on some U.S. iPhones, but it's also been ordered to pay $506 million to the University of Wisconsin-Madison's patent licensing arm for patent infringement. While Apple is pretty loaded in terms of cash, $506 million is definitely no small figure to be sneezed at.

Not that Apple would ever use someone else's technology without permission, but that seems to be exactly what happened here, and when Apple got court ordered to pay a judgment, it did not do so. This enables a processor to predict what instructions a user will put into the system based on previous choices. An Apple spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.

WARF has a separate lawsuit against Apple it filed in 2015, alleging chips in later versions of the iPhone infringe on the same patent. He added $272m to the $234m jury verdict that WARF won in October 2015 against the iPhone maker. It was attained by a University of Wisconsin professor and three students in 1998. As per the sources, Apple has denied the allegations of infringement during the trial in court. The judge says that even after the initial judgment, Apple continued to infringe on the patent thus his reasoning for more than doubling the amount owed.
