Apple slapped with $506 million in patent dispute damages

Judge orders Apple to pay University of Wisconsin $507M for infringing on chip efficiency patent

Court documents show that Apple plans to appeal the ruling, reported Reuters. Now the judge has somewhat thrown the book at Apple, basically doubling the judgement.

A couple of years ago, Apple was facing a lawsuit filed against them by the University of Wisconsin, in which the university alleged that Apple had infringed upon a patent of theirs. Would not want to give any of those billions of dollars in cash to a university.

Apple has been ordered to pay the University of Wisconsin-Madison's patent licensing arm a sum of $506m (£387.49m).

Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is the group that sued Apple in 2014, and although the most recently ordered fine is significant, the group had intended for an even more damaging figure of $862 million to be inflicted on Apple. U.S. District Judge William Conley added to the damages today because Apple continued to infringe on the patent until it expired in December of 2016.

Apple denied infringement during the trial. In a separate situation, a judge overturned a jury's ruling in August that Apple has to pay a dubious tech company, often colloquially considered as a "patent troll", $625.6 million.

Apple did not reach back to The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment by the time of publication. Conley has said he would not rule on that case until Apple has an opportunity to appeal the original jury verdict.

The patent in question is WARF-owned USA patent 5,781,752, which was obtained by computer science professor Gurindar Sohi and three students in 1998.

The said patent has to do with a unique "predictor circuit" that aims to predict the next processor instructions that the user is likely to issue.
