Federal Appeals Court Sides With Skype On Patent Case By Acacia Research's Peer Communications.

VoIP Patents
The federal appeals court has upheld a lower court’s decision to dismiss patent claims against Skype related to uniform network technology filed by Peer Communications, a subsidiary of Acacia Research Corporation,. 
Acacia Research’s subsidiaries acquire, develop, license and enforce patents.I call these firms Patent Trolls

They filed the patent case in August 2006 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. The court ruled in favor of Skype and then the case then went on to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Hope skype will have same results with othe Skype law suits.
