A Virginia court ruled in Cox’s favor over Verizon in a patent dispute over VoIP technology. Verizon was hoping to repeat a VoIP patent victory over Vonage, which resulted in a $117 million settlement. No such luck with Cox. “We remain deeply committed to providing our customers high-quality phone service at a great value, and look forward to competing vigorously with Verizon in the marketplace, not the courtroom,” the company said in an e-mailed statement to Reuters. Verizon is pursuing a similar patent infringement suit with Charter. Looks like Charter’s defense just got a little stronger, and Cablevision and Time Warner Cable have a little less VoIP patent issues to worry about.
