Vringo (VRNG) announced a verdict in its wholly-owned subsidiary I/P Engine's case against AOL (AOL), Google (GOOG), IAC Search & Media (IACI), Gannett (GCI), and Target (TGT) with respect to the Defendants' infringement of the asserted claims of Vringo's "'420 Patent" and the "'664 Patent." After finding that the asserted claims of the Patents were both valid and infringed by Google, the jury found that reasonable royalty damages should be based on a "running royalty", and that the running royalty rate should be 3.5%. After finding that the asserted claims of the Patents were both valid and infringed by the Defendants, the jury found that the following sums of money, if paid now in cash, would reasonably compensate I/P Engine for the Defendants past infringement as follows: Google: $15,800,000; AOL: $7,943,000; IAC: $6,650,000; Gannett: $4,322; and Target: $98,833.
