MARSHALL, TX—Newegg, an online retailer that has made a name for itself fighting the non-practicing patent holders sometimes called "patent trolls," sits on the losing end of a lawsuit tonight. An eight-person jury came back shortly after 7:00pm and found that the company infringed all four asserted claims of a patent owned by TQP Development, a company owned by patent enforcement expert Erich Spangenberg.The jury also found that the patent was valid, apparently rejecting arguments by famed cryptographer Whitfield Diffie. Diffie took the stand on Friday to argue on behalf of Newegg and against the patent.

Previously, Newegg made the risky choice not to put on a damages expert, but Baldauf took the issue on in his closing.The jurors had seen a retail giant like Target pay just $40,000 to get out of the TQP lawsuit, so Baldauf asked jurors to consider the hard math of patent litigation."Let's say you're in charge of litigation at Target," he said. "It's $2 million to $3 million to defend yourself. I think most people in that situation would decide to settle." But it doesn't mean that Target respects the patent, said Baldauf. "I can't imagine anyone at Target thinks this patent is valid or infringed."
