Apple Inc. owes $532 million for using patented VirnetX Holding Corp. technology for secure communications, a lawyer for VirnetX told a federal jury in Texas Monday.

“Apple hasn’t played fair. They have taken Virnetx’s intellectual property without permission,” VirnetX lawyer Brad Caldwell of Caldwell Cassady told the jury in Tyler, Texas.
