Apple gets a fine of 430 million euros! VPN patent on iPhone was the cause

The legal battle between Apple and VirnetX, an American online security company, has been going on for a long time. Now, the court’s decision came to light in the most recent legal process, where VirnetX accused Apple of infringing one of its patents regarding the way users connect to a VPN on iOS, affecting both the iPhone like the iPad.

After VirnetX argued that Apple should pay around 600 million euros for the impact of its infractions, the judge decided in a 90-minute session that the final fine would be 430 million euros. Although it was not the total amount demanded by the American company, it is still a big blow to Apple’s coffers, which would be willing to pay less than 100 million euros.

Apple will appeal the decision and claims that these patents are no longer relevant

In an official statement after the judge’s decision was confirmed, an Apple representative revealed his great disappointment with the court’s decision. According to the statement, this is a case that has been going on for more than a decade and that patents are not related to the core of operations for Apple products.

So the Apple team of lawyers is already preparing a response to this verdict and they believe they are right on their side, saying that cases like this “only serve to delay innovation and harm consumers“.

VirnetX safes continue to be “filled” by Apple

This is not the first time that the two companies have been in court to discuss patent infringements. VirnetX had already sued Apple over other patents that involved communication security technologies, in a process that lasted a decade.

After starting the entire process in 2010, the United States Supreme Court finally ruled that Apple would have to pay 376 million euros to VirnetX. This decision, made in March this year, was final and the last appeal filed by Apple was rejected.
