MOBILE, Ala, - Apple has found itself on the losing end of a Facetime lawsuit. A U.S. court for the Eastern District of Texas has ordered the tech company to pay $368 million dollars in infringement damages to another tech company, Virnet-X.
The court ruled against Apple saying Apple's Facetime videocalling infringes four patents owned by Virnet-X. Apple does have the option to appeal.
Virnet-X previously got a $200 million dollar settlement from Microsoft over similar claims. That $368 million dollars is half of what the company sought to receive from Apple.
