Apple will have to pay 85 million in patent infringement lawsuit

According to Bloomberg, Apple lost a lawsuit against Canadian company WiLan. This loss implies a payment of 85 million dollars by the Cupertino company, for violation of patents related to wireless technologies.

WiLan develops wireless communication technologies, licensing and patenting these technologies for later sale to companies like Apple. According to the lawsuit documents, the patents are related to wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections.

Originally, the sum requested by WiLan was over 85 million, but Apple contested how the Canadian company reached that number. After a re-analysis based on the sales of iPhones, the mentioned compensation value was then stipulated.

The truth is that WiLan has been dragging this dispute with Apple since 2010. However, this kind of legal battles between technology companies tend to take years to reach a conclusion.

Apple has a rich track record in lawsuits

This dispute with WiLan is far from the only one where Apple is involved when it comes to patents. It is worth recalling the Apple vs Samsung case, where the Korean company claimed that Apple had infringed several technology patents related to mobile phones. This dispute lasted 7 years and was only resolved in 2018, with the decision to favor Apple.

There is also the Apple vs. Qualcomm lawsuit, which promises to go on for some time. The lawsuit was initiated by Apple, which claims that Qualcomm has been charging unfair revenues for the use of technologies purchased as processor components.
