In November 2012 a jury found Apple guilty of patent infringement against patent troll… sorry non-participating entity, VirnetX. VirnetX claimed that Apple was in violation of a few patents that they own. These patents relate to video and text messaging. VirnetX has also filed a new suit against Microsoft for some of the same patents claiming that Microsoft’s license for Skype does not cover what they are using these technologies for. So you can see that VirnetX keeps themselves busy.

Apple found guilty of copying VirnetX's technology


The patent troll is a company that does not produce anything, but holds patent rights to various technologies; in this case a company named VirnetX put another major victory under their belt. Only two years ago they "ripped off" Microsoft for $200 million for alleged breach of patent rights (and are in ongoing lawsuit against Cisco, Avaya and Siemens). Now they have won a lawsuit that earned them $368.2 million in a dispute against none other than Apple.
