Apple denies plan to sell mobile services directly to consumers
FRANKFURT/PARIS (Reuters) - Apple Inc , the world's most profitable mobile phone maker, has denied working on a plan to market communications services directly to consumers and bypass the telecom companies on which it has long relied to sell its products. Business Insider had on Monday reported that the iPhone maker was testing a so-called mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) service in the United States, which would involve it renting capacity from one or more network operators to sign up customers to its own phone and data plans. The mobile phone maker is also in talks with European operators about such an arrangement, the website reported.

Marvell Technology wins cut in $1.54 billion Carnegie Mellon patent award
A U.S. appeals court upheld a jury verdict that Marvell Technology Group Ltd infringed two hard disk drive patents held by Carnegie Mellon University, but said a $1.54 billion damages award against the chipmaker should be reduced significantly. In a 3-0 vote, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on Tuesday said Marvell must pay at least $278.4 million, representing a 50-cent-a-chip royalty on 556.8 million chips imported into the United States for use in the drives. The court ordered a new trial to determine the extent to which Marvell chips made abroad and not imported may ultimately have been the subject of a domestic "sale," justifying higher royalties for Pittsburgh-based Carnegie Mellon.
