Apple loses 532.9 million jury verdict in ED Texas

From Bloomberg:

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. was told to pay $532.9 million after a federal jury said the company’s iTunes software and games accessed through the service used a Texas company’s patented inventions without permission.
Closely held Smartflash LLC, which claimed that Apple infringed three patents, was seeking $852 million in damages. A federal jury in Tyler, Texas, where Smartflash is based, rejected Apple’s arguments that it didn’t use the inventions and that the patents were invalid.
