Apple Loses $368 Million to Patent Troll Over FaceTime

Bloomberg reports:

VirnetX Holding Corp. (VHC) was awarded $368.2 million after a federal jury yesterday said Apple Inc. infringed its patents for virtual-private-network technology used in Apple’s FaceTime video-calling function.

VirnetX also won $200 million from Microsoft back in 2010. It’s ridiculous that patent trolls can take advantage of big companies like Apple and Microsoft.
