Another Verdict in Verizon vs. Vonage Patent Litigation

A U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed early rulings that Vonage violated two VoIP patents held by Verizon. The court remanded the guilty verdict of a third patent. Further, the Court of Appeals vacated the entire award of $58 million in damages and the 5.5% royalty. The Court of Appeals remanded the case to the U.S. District Court and directed that the court retry those aspects of the original case.

Vonage said that technical workarounds of the two infringing patents have been in place for a whilehttp://www.vonage.com/
