Apple, Broadcom fined $1.1bn in patent case

Jan 30, 2020 13:29 IST

A US federal court has asked tech majors Apple and Broadcom to pay $1.1 billion in fine to the California Institute of Technology (CalTech) in what is seen as one of the largest patent verdicts ever. The California-based research university alleged that the Broadcom wi-fi chips used in billions of iphones infringed on four patents relating to wireless data transmissions. According to reports, Apple plans to appeal the verdict calling itself “merely an indirect downstream party.”
