Emblaze Loses Patent Case With Apple

There are a lot of patent infringement cases that Apple has been involved in over the years. They recently settled a case in which they were accusing Samsung of stealing one of their patents. The latest, however, involves a company that claims Apple’s devices use their streaming technology without their permission, reports Apple Balla.

In iPhones and iPads, since 2009, there has been a streaming protocol that handles video streams from a variety of sources. According to a case originally filed in 2010, Emblaze created the technology that Apple has been using. After years of fighting, the jury has reached a verdict and declared Apple the winner.

In their arguments, Apple fought to portray Emblaze as a patent troll who was seeking to make up for their lack of success in the real world, outside of the courtroom. Emblaze was earning hundreds of millions of dollars in 2008, although they have fallen on hard times and produced only $1.8 million in 2013. They deny the accusations of simply trolling for money, but Apple reiterated the point time and time again, which is why they have evaded the $511 million payment Emblaze was seeking.

While they have won this round, Apple certainly hasn’t seen the last of the patent infringement world. They are the highest earning company in all of Silicon Valley, so there are plenty of people who would like to have a piece and take them to court in order to get it.

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.
