Post-trial hearing after VirnetX victory

Apple has been ordered to provide updated sales data in the wake of VirtnetX's November lawsuit victory, the latter has announced. At a post-trial hearing earlier today, the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas Tyler Division asked Apple to submit data for several products, such as the iPhone 5, even though some of them weren't cited for patent infringement in the trial. The information is needed for VirtnetX request for judgment, and a January 15th deadline has been set.

Last month the court ordered Apple to pay VirtnetX $368 million for violating a VPN patent. VirtnetX has nevertheless filed a second lawsuit over four more patents, while continuing to pursue separate cases against Avaya, Cisco, and Siemens. In 2010 Microsoft settled with VirtnetX for $200 million.
