A jury has found Sony guilty of copyright infringement and ordered the electronics giant to pay $18.5 million USD in monetary compensation to Agere Systems.

Sony was found guilty of "wilfully violating copyrighted technology on a number of devices" including the mylo personal communicator, the PlayStation Portable and the Network Walkman audio players. The patent in question relates to a "wireless local area network apparatus."

Although Agere won the case, it is not clear whether the ordered compensation is what the company had hoped for. The original claim stated Agere wanted compensation for lost profits as well as monetary damages equal to 300 percent of the lost profits.

I'm confused. Is it patent infringement or copyright violation?
