"We are elated with the Court's Final Judgement of $439 million in that not only did it affirm the jury's verdict of $1.20 per infringing iPhone, iPad and Mac Product, but also added for willful infringement, interest and attorney fees," VirnetX CEO Kendall Larsen said.
"This is the third time a jury has ruled in our favor against Apple."
The court granted all of VirnetX's motions, including one for willful infringement and one for an enhanced royalty rate from $1.20 to $1.80 per device.
"We believe this established per device rate for security is very reasonable and will greatly assist us with our domestic and global licensing efforts," Larsen said.
The court ruling appears to conclude the seven-year legal fight, which was the first patent infringement case against Apple.
Apple, though, said it plans to appeal the court's order, The Verge reported. ■
