Patent Licensing Company WiLan Wins $145.1 Million From Apple in Patent Dispute

by John_A

A Southern California jury has awarded Canadian patent holding company WiLan $145.1 million in an ongoing patent dispute with Apple, WiLan announced today.

Apple’s iPhones were found to infringe on two patents (No. 8,457,145 and No. 8,537,757) related to wireless communications technology.

WiLan, a company owned by Quarterhill, describes itself as “one of the most successful patent licensing companies in the world.”

Apple’s legal dispute with WiLan has been going on since 2010, when WiLan claimed Apple had violated one of its Bluetooth related patents. In a case separate from today’s, WiLan had demanded $248 million in damages from Apple, a battle that it lost in 2013 when a a jury ruled in Apple’s favor.
