Law.com has the results of the patent infringement lawsuit over the Steam
last week (thanks
VGC). Word is the jury ruled in favor of the plaintiff, and Valve is on the
hook to pay them $4 million:
The number is on the low end of the damages

argued there was no infringement.
The intellectual property holding company for video came controller maker SCUF
Gaming has won a $4 million verdict in the nation’s first all-virtual patent
infringement jury trial.
