Google’s Chrome browser infringed on four anti-malware patents, a court in Texas decided, ordering the company to dig for $20 million into its pockets.
According to the case file, the patents were awarded to Allen Rozman, former Lucent engineer, and Alfonso J. Cioffi. Rozman died back in 2012, but Cioffi decided to take Google to court in 2013.
The case was dismissed back in 2014 by US District Judge Gilstrap. Then, plaintiffs acknowledged that under the judge’s interpretation of “web browser process”, an infringement claim wouldn’t hold up. But the case was not close by a long shot because Cioffi and Rozman’s family decided to file an appeal, Law360 reports
