The University of Wisconsin Wins the Patent Case against Apple on Microchip


Apple loses a MicroChip patent lawsuit as jury finds iPhone, iPad chip violates processor patent, have to bear the bill of $862


A US jury has found that chips powering Apple mobile devices such as iPhone & iPad infringe on technology patented by Wisconsin University researchers. According to the jury, Apple In could be facing up to $862m (£565m) of bill after losing a patent lawsuit, according to a recent ruling by US District Judge William Conley, who is presiding over the case.


The devices on which jury finds violated chip patent, claimed by The University of Wisconsin, includes iPhone 5S, iPad Air, and iPad Mini with Retina display. The University of Wisconsin has successfully claimed that Apple have been using its MicriChip without permission.


Moreover, according to The University of Wisconsin, a leading American multinational technology company ignored the offer to license the chip patent. It means that Apple In has to pay the fee due to continue use. Apply may also have to bear more bills as University has also filed the case against Apple's newest models, the 6S and 6S Plus.


If court finds that Apple has willingly violated the chip patent law, after being license offered by the public research university located in Madison, the Company might have to bear more damages and fines.


The University of Wisconsin had also sued Intel over the same patent in 2008, but the case was closed due to settlement between the both partners out of court.
