Apple found not guilty in lawsuit over video streaming
The patent infringement lawsuit began in 2010, when a Israel-based company called Emblaze went after Apple. The patent in question related to real-time broadcasting and Emblaze claimed that Apple was using the technology without a license.
Friday, according to Bloomberg News, a jury swiftly rendered a "not guilty" verdict.
Emblaze claimed that Apple pushed organizations like Major League Baseball (for MLB At Bat) and ESPN to use Apple streaming technology, which Emblaze claimed to own.
The jury found that the preponderance of evidence didn't prove that Apple infringed on the Emblaze patent. Apple attorney Mark Fowler told the jury that Emblaze was an example of a failed company that targeted Apple due to its success.
The case was heard in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in San Jose, California. The trial began on July 1.
