Apple has won a multimillion-dollar litigation with a small firm Mirror Worlds, founded by a professor at Yale University, David Gelernter. |
In October 2010 the jury supported Mirror Worlds claims that Apple violated patents owned by it and obliged Apple to pay $ 625.5 million in fines - for $ 208.5 million for each of the three patent infringement.
The plaintiff claimed that the illegal use of technology in the devices Mac, iPhones and iPods and related organizations interface Cover Flow, backup system Time Machine and software for searching computer hard drives. Apple immediately appealed the decision.
Now the Federal Court of Texas ruled the opposite order, eliminating fine. It is reported that Mirror Worlds has not provided sufficient evidence to justify the amount designated for compensation. Mirror Worlds lawyers refused to comment the situation.
