Mirror Worlds All Set for a Big Bite of the Apple
[image from here]
The Jury in a US District Court in Texas found Apple Inc. liable for patent infringement of three patents and awarded a whooping USD 625.5 million (USD 208.5 million for each patent) in damages to Mirror Worlds. Mirror Worlds had sued Apple for patent infringement of three of their patents which Apple seems to have incorporated in its Time Machine and Cover Flow feature found in Mac, Ipod and Itunes. Mirror World was founded by Yale professor David Gelernter.
Perturbed by the jury award Apple filed an emergency motion requesting Judge Davis of the District court for a stay on the award and the judgment, Apple’s chief argument being that USD 208.5 million for each patent amounts to ‘triple dipping’.
The latest information on this is that Judge Davis has postponed his final judgment on the issue until the end of November. Now its a waiting game to see if Mirror Worlds leaves Apple poorer by USD 625.5 million.
