Google faces $125 million damages claim after losing Android patent lawsuit

The Google Inc. has infringed the SimpleAir’s patent with its famous Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) service and the Android Cloud to Device Messaging (C2DM) service, the SimpleAir has said in an official news release. These services are being used by the Google Inc. to process and then send instant notifications for the Android applications, such as the Facebook, Twitter, and the Gmail app, it added.

The jury has found all the five claims of the SimpleAir’s 7,035,914 patent on a “system and the method for transmission of the data” valid and infringed by the Google Inc., which is according to the jury verdict that was recently filed with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of the Texas area, the Marshall Division, on last Saturday.

The jury was however unable to reach on a unanimous decision yet, on the amount of damages to award for the Google Inc.’s infringement, the SimpleAir Inc. has said, adding that a separate jury is going to decide on the amount in a limited second trial. The SimpleAir seeks the damages in excess of about $125 million.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
