Apple trolled by Smartflash

Apple was found guilty of infringing three patens owned by Smartflash LLC and was ordered to pay $533 million.  The patents were infringed in the itunes system invoving music storage and downloads.  This is yet another instance in the continual "patent troll" saga, according to Apple, in which a company (Smartflash) obtains patents for the sole purpose of citing infringement(s) against a manufacturing entity to obtain royalties or court judgement.

As indicated, Apple said it would appeal.
