The saga between VirnetX and Apple has been running since about the start of the decade. It’s now come to a blow against Cupertino.

The Arizona-based patent holding company has successfully argued that Apple infringed four of its patents concerning VPN and FaceTime interfaces. An attorney for VirnetX said that the award was “well-deserved” while an Apple representative said “cases like this simply reinforce the desperate need for patent reform.”

Apple requested for the judge to declare a mistrial because the company believed that laweyers for VirnetX had “blatantly [misrepresented] the testimony of Apple witnesses.”

The two sparred in a previous trial from 2010, but it was thrown out in 2012.
