Metaswitch infringed 7 Genband patents - court

Tuesday 4 October 2016 | 08:59 CET | News
A US district court in Texas has found that Metaswitch infringed seven Genband patents. Metaswitch must now pay USD 8.1 million for infringement from the start of the lawsuit in January 2014 through to the last date the company disclosed its revenues before the trial, in August 2015. Genband can also seek additional damages for every infringing sale since August 2015, as well as enhanced damages (up to 3x actual damages) for ongoing sales, for "willful" infringement.
