A Los Angeles court ordered Apple and Broadcom to pay one of the largest fines in history for stealing technology, that is, for violating four Wi-Fi patents.
This is not only about the history of Apple litigation, but also about patent disputes in general for all the time. A company from Cupertino and Broadcom should pay $ 1.1 billion to California University of Technology (Caltech), of which Apple will give back 837 million
Kaltech found that Broadcom used a number of university-patented technologies for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch components. The trial on this issue has been ongoing since 2016. Both Broadcom and Apple intend to appeal the court decision, as they disagree with the factual and legal grounds for the verdict.
