Okay, so let's assume there is a new trial. One of the reasons the jury found for a .52 royalty rate was the fact that Apple lied about the de minimis cost of a work around and how it would create an inferior product. Unfortunately for Apple, VHC and the HJD both know that Apple's cost scenario is bogus and the jury will now have that information also. I bet the jury award will be significantly higher this time around and even Apple can see that risk. This case gets settled long before an order is issued by the appeal court.
