UW and WARF awarded $500 million from Apple

WARF foundation was awarded a large settlement recently due to Apple appropriating a WARF patent on speculative instruction execution.  I'll let The Register carry it from here -

Analysis Apple has been hit with a $506m bill for infringing CPU design patents belonging to the University of Wisconsin.

Judge William Conley, of the Wisconsin Western US District Court, has ordered [PDF] the Cupertino iPhone maker to pay $506,084,992.66 (£386m) in damages. This comes after a jury found that Apple used technology in the A7 processor that was patented by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.
