Voip-Pal plans to increase damage demands in lawsuits vs Apple, others

Voip-Pal.com has announced its intent to increase the damage claims in its lawsuits against Apple, Verizon and AT&T. Over the past few months the company says it’s been reevaluating the initial damage calculation claims made in its February 2016 lawsuits and has “determined its initial claim for damages was calculated using a significantly lower royalty monetization model than has been used in actual court awards of recent patent infringement cases.”

Voip-Pal claims that “Apple, Verizon and AT&T were regrettably unwilling to engage in discussion of licensing the company’s intellectual property and technology.” It’s a publicly traded corporation that acquired Digifonica International Limited in 2013 in order to fund, co-develop and complete Digifonica's suite of patents. 

Digifonica purportedly operationalized and tested its suite of software solutions with applications in five core areas of Internet connectivity: Routing, Billing and Rating; Lawful Intercept; Short Number Dialing (Enhanced 911) Mobile Gateway; and Uninterrupted Transmission. Voip-Pal has a combined $7 billion in patent infringement lawsuits filed in February 2016 in the United States District Court, District of Nevada.
