Sprint sues over VoIP patents

Antony Savvas

Sprint Nextel is suing Vonage, Voiceglo and Theglobe.com for allegedly infringing its patents related to delivering voice over IP services.

The action is in connection with seven patents Sprint holds in VoIP technology, which is a growing market, with Vonage now one of the leading companies in providing end-user VoIP services in the US and the UK.

Sprint’s action aims to bar the defendants from using its patented technology, and the lawsuit seeks unspecified financial damages for the alleged infringements.

The three defendants in the action have so far not responded to the lawsuit.
