The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against patent holders in two cases, rejecting a legal theory used to sue technology companies and requiring patents to be written with more specific language.
A hearing in a patent dispute between Limelight Networks Inc. and Akamai Technologies Inc. left the U.S. Supreme Court wondering whether its ruling would make any difference.
Even as it deals with hot-button issues like campaign financing and affirmative action, the U.S. Supreme Court has patents on its mind these days.
Akamai Technologies Inc . lost a court ruling in its four-year patent battle with Limelight Networks Inc . over software that speeds delivery of Web videos.
Apple Inc. didn’t infringe a patent owned by Google Inc.’s Motorola Mobility unit over mobile-phone technology, a U.S. appeals court ruled Jan. 10.
Akamai Technologies Inc . persuaded a U.S. appeals court to reconsider whether Limelight Networks Inc . infringed a patent over software that speeds delivery of Web videos.
Limelight Networks Inc. won an appeals court ruling that upheld a verdict rejecting patent-infringement claims by Level 3 Communications Inc. over software that speeds delivery of Web videos.
"Akamai put itself in a position of having to show that the allegedly infringing activities of Limelight's customers were attributable to Limelight."
