article imageJuge Orders Vonage to Stop Using Verizion’s Patented Technology

By n8twj     Mar 23, 2007 in Internet
U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton approved Verizion’s injunction against Vonage. However, Hilton stated he wouldn’t sign the order before a hearing for Vonage’s request for a stay has completed - which is scheduled to take place in two weeks.
On March 8th a Jury found that Vonage infringed three patents and should pay $58 million dollars to Verizion.
Brooke Schulz, a Vonage spokeswoman said that they are developing "technical workarounds'' to avoid infringing Verizon's patents.
The company is expecting to win a 120-day stay, allowing it to persue an appeal of the jury verdict.
If this decision is allowed to stand this could outright kill the VoIP industry since this would surely spark lawsuits against other growing VoIP Providers like SunRocket, NuFone or Packet8.
