Federal Appeals Court affirms Mentor Graphics patents victory over Synopsys

Mentor Graphics (MENT) announced that a panel of judges for the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has, in a precedential opinion, unanimously upheld a lower court's ruling that Synopsys (SNPS) infringed U.S. Patent No. 6,240,376 for emulation technology developed by Mentor Graphics. The Court has also upheld a permanent injunction barring sales of infringing products. The Appeals Court affirmed the lower court's award of over $36M in lost profits damages, and further ruled that Mentor Graphics may pursue treble damages for willful infringement of the '376 patent. In addition, the Appeals Court reinstated Mentor Graphics' U.S. Patent No. 6,947,882 directed to clock timing for emulators, and revived Mentor's claims that Synopsys infringes U.S. Patent Nos. 5,649,176 and 6,009,531 for Mentor's emulation technology. In October of 2014 a jury found that Synopsys infringed several claims of the '376 Patent and awarded Mentor Graphics more than $36M in damages, and in March 2015 Mentor Graphics obtained a permanent injunction against Synopsys' infringement.
