Court Favors I/P Engine in Ongoing Patent Dispute with Google, AOL, IAC Search & Media, Gannett and Target

A district court issued an order favoring Vringo Inc. unit I/P Engine Inc. in its patent litigation against AOL Inc., Google Inc., IAC/InterActiveCorp's IAC Search & Media Inc., Gannett Co. Inc. and Target Corp. In the order, the court found that Vringo is entitled to ongoing royalties, as a "design-around" used by the defendants is "nothing more than a colorable variation of the system adjudged to infringe". The court deferred ruling on the royalty rate pending the parties' settlement conference. In a November 2012 decision, a jury upheld the validity of Vringo patents and recommended that five companies, including Google and AOL, pay about $30.5 million in aggregate damages for infringement. I/P Engine also sought higher royalties and damages in the patent dispute with the defendants. Meanwhile, in an order dated Jan. 3, the court ordered that I/P Engine recover an additional sum of about $17.3 million from the defendants for supplemental damages and prejudgment interest.
