∞ Apple appeals $625 million patent loss

Apple asked the court for an emergency stay of a verdict that could cost the company over $625 million.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Mirror Worlds won the patent case against Apple in a ruling delivered on October 1 in Tyler, Texas. The jury found that Apple infringed on three of the company’s patents and awarded it $208.5 million per patent.

The patents are “related to how documents are displayed digitally,” according to a story on Bloomberg.

Apple also asked the court to rule that it didn’t infringe on two of Mirror Worlds’ patents. Considering the request, the judge said if he ruled in Apple’s favor, any damages related to those patents would be stricken.

Mirror Worlds was founded by Yale University computer-science Professor, David Gelernter.
