Despite a brief ban on the sale of the Apple Watch, Massimo still wants to prove that he is right around Apple.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal published on Saturday, CEO Joe Chiani revealed that afterward that battle, Massimo spent “approximately $100 million” fighting Apple over its technology.
As revealed in a previous interview, Kiani wants to keep fighting and won’t stop until Apple pays for the technology and changes the way it beget with small businesses.I agree.
Before Kiani took legal action, his colleagues and friends warned him of the dangers of such measures against such a formidable opponent. “People told me I was crazy and couldn’t stand up to Apple,” Kiani said, adding that Apple had “unlimited resources.”

Kiani’s troop profile and litigation claims that some view the “aggressive use of the U.S. patent system” as “exploitation that stifles the innovation of others.”
Kiani’s beget is elongate but profitable for Massimo.During a seven-year patent dispute with Nilcor that ended in 2006, Massimo was reward damages and royalties totaling nearly $800 million.

Although Apple has not attempted to negotiate a deal with Massimo, Kiani is reportedly determined to continue negotiations even if the company loses.
“I feel like I have to do it,” Kiani stressed in the report. “If I can stop the most powerful company in the world from causing harm, it will have a greater impact on the world than I do.
