Vonage Announces "Workarounds" To Counter Verizon Patent Infringement

Vonage’s CEO announced today that his company had sucessfully developed “workarounds” to the Verizon patents that they’d been found guilty of infringing. From InformationWeek:

“We have substantially completed the deployment of workarounds for the two name translation patents and have completed the development of the wireless patent workaround,” said Vonage chairman and chief executive Jeffrey Citron, in an e-mail message. “This is a significant step toward moving ahead with our business in the wake of the Verizon litigation.”

Good news for customers who want to stay with Vonage. Will their ‘workaround” defeat Verizon’s team of robotic super-lawyers? Only time will tell.
