Google has been found guilty of infringing on a patent held by SimpleAir. The verdict, reached by a federal jury on January 18, was announced today by SimpleAir. The patent in question pertains to push notification technology found in the Google Cloud Messaging and Android Cloud to Device Messaging services, which are encompassed within Android smartphones and tablets. The notifications covered apps such as Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter. Google was found guilty on all five claims made by SimpleAir. Further, the patent itself was found to be valid by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The jury could not agree on damages, so a separate trial will be held to determine how much money Google owes SimpleAir. SimpleAir said it is seeking $125 million. The trial took place in Texas.
