Apple hit with $600 million Cover Flow fine
Category : General 06 Oct 2010 10:04 AM | Insider News
Apple is fighting to get a decision of patent infringement overturned by a US judge, who has ruled that the company's iTunes Cover Flow technology infringes three patents held by Mirror Worlds.
A judge in Texas ruled last week that Apple had to pay $208.5 million for each patent it had infringed with its Cover Flow technology, which is in use on the company's iPods, iPhones and Macs.
Out of the four patents Mirror Worlds lay claim to the judge ruled that Apple was in breach of the three of them, which brings the total fine to over $600 million.
If Apple can't overturn this ruling, then it will be one of the biggest patent payouts ever in the US.
