Jury Awards Core Wireless $7.3 Million in Patent Litigation Against Apple



A jury in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California has awarded Core Wireless Licensing, a subsidiary of Conversant Intellectual Property Management Inc., $7.3 million in damages after finding that Apple, Inc. infringed two smartphone patents owned by Core Wireless.
The patents-in-suit — U.S. Patent No. 6,633,536 and U.S. Patent No. 6,477,151 — provide innovations that improve battery life and signal quality in mobile phones.
Core Wireless alleged that Apple’s recent iPhones and cellular-enabled iPads infringed both patents. The jury determined that the patents are infringed and valid, and awarded Core Wireless $7.3 million for past damages. Core Wireless will also seek interest on the award dating from October 2011.
The case is Core Wireless Licensing S.a.r.l. v. Apple, Inc., Civil Action No. 5:15-cv-05008 (N.D.Cal.). The infringing Apple products are the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S, 5C, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, and SE and the cellular-enabled iPad, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Mini, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, and iPad Pro.
