Google, others lose Vringo suit, must pay $30 million

11/07, 1:25pm

Google had moved to dismiss patent suit based on Lycos tech

Google and four other companies were found by a jury in Virginia to have infringed on patents held by Vringo, and the companies must now pay Vringo about $30 million for those infringements. First filed in 2011, the lawsuit also included AOL, IAC Search & Media, and Gannett, and Target Corp. Of the $30 million fine, Google will pay $15.8 million, AOL $7.9 million, IAC Search & Media $6.6 million, and Gannet $4,322. Vringo had been hoping for at least $696 million in compensation from the judgment.
