Tehran (KNA) - Apple has been ordered to pay $502m (£353m) to a company called VirnetX after being found guilty of infringing its security patents.


A jury in Texas - which is a popular location for patent lawsuits - said that Apple's FaceTime, VPN on Demand and iMessage features improperly used intellectual property owned by VirnetX.

Their decision is the latest ruling in a series of cases which began in 2010 and have been heard by multiple courts.Kendall Larsen, VirnetX's chief executive, said the damages were "fair" and based on the sales of more than 400 million Apple devices.
