Apple ordered to pay $145M in damages for patent infringement


A jury agreed that iPhone models infringed wireless communications patents.

Apple must pay Canadian patent licensing company WiLan $145.1 million in damages for patent infringement, a California jury ruled Wednesday.

The jury said that some iPhone models infringed two WiLan wireless communications technology patents.

One of those is for a "method and apparatus for bandwidth request protocols in a wireless communication system" and the other is for "adaptive call admission control for use in a wireless communication system," 9to5Mac reports.

Apple rejected infringement claims in pretrial filings, and reportedly plans to appeal the verdict.

This is second time the companies have met in court. Apple was found not guiltyof infringing on other WiLan wireless networking technology patents in October 2013.
