Company wins $368M from Apple, immediately files brand-new lawsuit

10 02 2013

Three days ago, Apple was ordered to pay $368.2 million for infringing domain name security and virtual private network patents for its FaceTime service. Now, it turns out the same company that beat Apple in that case—VirnetX—filed a new lawsuit against the iPhone maker on the very same day.

The suit, filed Tuesday in US District Court in Eastern Texas (PDF), repeats the same allegations but updates them to target Apple’s latest products. Those include the iPhone 5, fifth generation iPod Touch, fourth generation iPad, iPad mini, and all Macs using OS X Mountain Lion. FaceTime, iMessage, and Apple’s use of VPN On Demand technology are the culprits, VirnetX says. The plaintiff is demanding monetary damages and a permanent injunction preventing Apple from continuing to infringe its patents.
