Fed jury: Apple lifted Warf's IP. Now U. Wisc. wants $400,000,000

Apple infringed six patent claims, says a U.S. jury. The technology, invented by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, improved the performance and power-efficiency of CPUs.

Indeed, UofW’s licensing arm, the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), argues Apple must have willfully stole the technology. Not only that, but Apple refused to license it from the school.

Apple has been using the patented technology in several generations of the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. And WARF says it still is using it, in the latest A9 SoC.

The case continues: The jury now moves on to deciding how much Apple should pay in damages. WARF is asking for about $400,000,000.00 to pay for more research.
