VirnetX has won another courtroom victory over Apple, this time to the tune of $502.6 million. A jury in Texas this week found that Apple is violating four patents held by VirnetX concerning secure communications between mobile devices. VirnetX is a patent-holding company and generates income by filing lawsuits against other companies. This particular case has been in the courts for years. An earlier version of the case awarded $440 million to VirnetX for the same patents on older Apple devices. It's not clear that Apple will ever have to pay VirnetX, however, because the Patent Trial and Appeal Board has declared the patents to be invalid in other cases currently in motion elsewhere.
