A Texas district court Wednesday upheld a jury verdict arrived at in November awarding Internet security firm VirnetX more than $368.2 million after it found Apple and its FaceTime video chat service infringed four virtual private networking patents designed to establish a secure connection between two devices.
The court denied Apple's motion to lower the damages.
Apple has to pay VirnetX more than $333,500 a day until the case is settled, a situation supposed to force the companies to come to an agreement on future royalties. Failure to reach an agreement could mean more damages.
The iPhone 5, iPad mini, iPod touch and recent Mac computer are all implicated.
