Apple found guilty of infringing on three MobileMedia Ideas patents, damages could be "substantial"
Apple's defense was that the complaint should be invalid "due to obviousness," but the jury disagreed. After listening to a one-week trial, it took the jury all of four hours to find that MobileMedia Ideas LC had "suffered and will continue to suffer damages and irreparable injury," at the hands of Apple. MobileMedia Ideas CEO Larry Horn said that his company is not in the "litigation business" and wants to license the patents, which were originally owned by Nokia and Sony. U.S. District Judge Sue L. Robinson will schedule a trial to be held over the issue of damages, which Horn says could be "substantial." Apple had no comment on the verdict.
