A federal judge in Texas ruled that Apple should pay approximately $ 308.5 million (approximately Rs. 2,234 crores) to Personalized Media Communications (PMC) for copyright infringement related to digital rights management.
Judges at the end of Friday ordered Apple to pay a fee to the PMC, usually based on the sale price of a product or service.
PMC, a licensed company, had sued Apple in early 2015 alleging that the iTunes tech giant iTunes service had infringed seven patents.
