Vonage Runs Afoul of Patents - Again

A jury in Kansas City has determined that Vonage infringed six Sprint telecomm patents, and ordered the IP telco to pay $69.5 million in damages plus a 5% royalty in the future, reports Law Day Newsletter. Earlier, a jury in Virginia found the company guilty of infringing three Verizon patents, and awarded that company $58 million plus 5.5%. Combined, that'd be a royalty of over 10%. Vonage is appealing both rulings.
