The last month has seen Apple lose a patent infringement lawsuit to Personal Audio for playlisting technology and ordered to pay $8 million, before the company came back for more in relation to newer Apple products. However, Personal Audio won’t be getting its way: a US District Court judge has ruled that the $8 million covers “past and future use of the technology” including iPhone and iPad, which hadn’t been released when Personal Audio filed its original lawsuit. “The court finds that the jury’s selection of lump sum as the appropriate form of reasonable royalty clearly represents a damages award giving Apple a fully paid up license that covers all past and future use of the patented technology,” ruled judge Ron Clark.
