A federal jury in Seattle has found Zillow guilty of infringing on the copyrights of VHT Inc. and ordered the company to pay $8.3 million.
 
According to a Seattle Times report, the jury verdict concludes a lawsuit filed in federal district court in 2015 by VHT, which claimed Zillow violated its copyrights by running VHT’s listing photos on Zillow Digs, a home improvement site. VHT only allows its listing photographs to run on home selling sites.
 
Zillow stated that it plans to ask the court to reverse parts of the verdict, and that it would seek a new trial on other aspects of the case.
