Bengaluru: A federal jury in California has awarded Canadian patent licensing company WiLan Inc $145.1 million (Dh532.51 million) in damages against Apple Inc for patent infringement, according to a court filing on Wednesday. The jury in San Diego determined that versions of Apple’s iPhone infringed two WiLan patents relating to wireless communications technology, WiLan, a unit of Quarterhill Inc, said in a statement. Apple confirmed it plans to appeal. The company earlier rejected claims of infringement in pretrial filings. In 2013, a US jury ruled in favour of Apple in a separate litigation in which WiLan had sought $248 million in damages.
