The business that binds Apple patent violations have been numerous in recent weeks Indeed, complaints against the Californian giant continue to abound. While some cases are still in progress or abandoned, others are coming to an end. This is for example the case of the case between the firm to the apple to the company Mirror World Technologies.
The latter notably filed a complaint against Apple for a patent dating from 1999. Carrying the registration number 6 006 227, it describes a system for storing various documents in order to display them then in chronological order. You have surely already seen such a system at work in many features such as Cover Flow or Time Machine on certain Apple devices.
Apple therefore used this technology without having the authorization and must therefore pay a fine of $ 25 million to Mirror World Technologies. An amount which covers the license fee and the damages caused by this violation. Moreover, it is not the only patent for which the aforementioned company has complained. There are still others, but it seems that he is the only one to have been compensated (for the moment).
