Judge ups Marvell IP payout to $1.54B

  • A district judge has ordered Marvell Technology Group (MRVL) to pay almost $1.54B for breaching two hard disk drive patents held by Carnegie Mellon University.
  • The amount is well above the $1.17B that a jury awarded Carnegie in December 2012. The judge, Nora Barry Fischer, increased the payout because she believes that Marvell copied the IP through "known willful infringement."
  • However, Fischer rejected Carnegie's requests for double or triple damages.

    Yes, of course, Marvell has been undervalued for a while now because of the looming danger of a much higher fee.
