VirnetX believes it has clear evidence, says damages were 'fair'
In a statement following the court verdict, VirnetX CEO Kendall Larsen called the amount "fair." The damages were based on sales of more than 400 million Apple devices. "The evidence was clear. Tell the truth and you don't have to worry about anything," Larsen added.
For VirnetX, this verdict could be a short-lived victory
Back in 2016, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board had said four of the patents VirnetX claims infringed, were considered invalid in all the cases that were currently before the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
However, Federal Circuit had refused to put the lawsuit on hold, saying it was too far along to hold the trial.
