A Wisconsin jury said Apple owes $234 million for using the university's patented technology without permission. Apple was found to violate the patents, owned by the Wisconsin Academic Research Fund (WARF), earlier this week. The technology helps improve the efficiency of chips and is found in Apple's A7, A8, and A8X processors. WARF claimed Apple willfully violated the patents and sought more than $800 million. Apple argued it should pay less than the $110 million amount Intel paid to settle a similar lawsuit in 2009. Apple plans to appeal the verdict.

I need a create a BS patent ASAP

This appears to be the fastest way to get rich. Discover something that didn't cost you anywhere near what you're awarded and just ride it out in style.

Can I just get away with oxygen and sue everyone on Earth?

I'll just patent everything available and wait for someone to use it by dumb luck.
"Its okay when apple break patents." the university devoloped that technology. This isnt a patent troll company. Wouldn't you want money from a company that got immensely rich off of your idea and didnt give royalties like agreed upon?
