[GSMArena] Court rules Apple is to pay $330K a day over Facetime patents

Last November a jury in Texas decided that Apple was to pay VirnetX, a firm that holds patents relative to Apple services FaceTime and iMessage, royalties that amount to $368 million. On Tuesday evening that ruling was upheld and the four patents in question were reaffirmed as infringed. The patents relate to creating a virtual private network between two devices (or VPN).
The judge on Tuesday evening also ruled that until some sort of patent licensing agreement has been reached between Apple and VirnetX, the Cupertino-based company has to pay $330 thousand a day to the plaintiff.

What an interesting number of dollars to fine them . . . I wonder if 330 is a signal for something?

This attitude is baffling to me. You're against so called "patent trolling" when Apple does it, but when another company does it to Apple... that's okay? Sounds like Kindergarten politics to me. Idk if this even counts as patent trolling but it goes to show you that any company can and will take advantage of this broken system. Unless you're just looking for another excuse to hate on Apple (which you probably are), this should qualify as bad news as its further evidence of the idiocy of the US patent system.

The difference is that Apple abuses it, and when they get served with the same spoon, well it just makes it sound delicious..

But people criticizing Apple for no reason, just like people that criticize those who criticize Apple, are equally disgusting..
