Apple Asked to Pay $145 Million in Damages to Canada's WiLan

The jury said that some iPhone models infringed two WiLan wireless communications technology patents, according to Reuters. These "8,457,145" and "8,537,757" patents relate to wireless communications tech - specifically bandwidth request protocols in a wireless communication system and adaptive call admission control. WiLAN, a Canadian intellectual property company, was awarded $145.1 million in damages as a result.

In a trial verdict rendered on August 1, 2018 in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California a jury awarded WiLAN $145.1 million in damages against Apple Inc. for infringement of WiLAN's U.S. patent Nos 8,457,145 and 8,537,757.

Quarterhill Inc. stock surged by almost a third a day after its subsidiary WiLAN Inc. was awarded $145.1-million in damages in a patent infringement case against Apple Inc.

Urban Meyer Knew of Abuse Allegation Against Assistant Coach
In 2014, Meyer's third year on the sidelines, Ohio State won the College Football Playoff title with a record of 14-1. McMurphy reports that the 2015 incident happened on October 25 while Zach and Courtney were separated.

WiLan was founded in 1992 in Ottawa as a creator of wireless broadband technologies, but the business has changed to a patent licensing firm.

This particular case between Apple and WiLan has been ongoing since 2010. Probably Apple's biggest win against WiLAN so far was when in 2013 Apple managed to disprove WiLAN's claims in a lawsuit that involved several major phone and networking equipment manufacturers. This decision marks the first time WiLAN has won a lawsuit against Apple.

Apple confirmed it plans to appeal.
