Sprint wins US$140m in Time Warner trial

New Straits Times - - Business -

WASH­ING­TON: Sprint Corp won a US$139.8 mil­lion (RM622.74 mil­lion) dam­age award af­ter a jury found that Time Warner Ca­ble in­fringed patents for dig­i­tal voice tele­phone ser­vices. Sprint filed the suit against Time Warner Ca­ble and other ca­ble tele­vi­sion firms in 2011, claim­ing they used, with­out per­mis­sion, Sprint in­ven­tions for trans­mit­ting phone calls over dig­i­tal lines. Time Warner Ca­ble will­fully in­fringed the patents, said the jury on Fri­day. That means the judge could in­crease the award by as much as three times the amount set by the jury.
