Vonage: Ouch

A US jury ordered Vonage to pay $58m ($30m) to rival Verizon for infringing three patents, plus royalties of 5.5% of future sales.

Verizon has now asked for an injunction that would stop Vonage from connecting its customers to landline telephones

Vonage seems like such an obvious idea to me. It sucks that a company like Verizon can patent everything under the sun & then just go around suing competitors into oblivion for doing the obvious thing.

IP doesn't work, it just collects royalties.

THANK YOU I'll be here all week. Remember to tip your waitress.
