Frontier Communications Corp. v. Google Inc., 10-cv-545 http://snapvoip.blogspot.com/
Frontier Communications Corp. filed a case against Google for infringing their patents with Google Voice. Google has acquired Grand Central and later converted it in to Google Voice. (A service we find very useful). Google is accused of infringing a new patent for enhanced telephony services, by the Stamford, Connecticut, based company in a complaint in federal court in Delaware.
Google has irked many telephony carriers like AT&T with it's Google Voice Service and it was a grand scandal when Apple blocked Google Voice from iPhones. Google is now working to expand the service even further. Google plans purchase to buy Global IP Solutions Holding AB, a IP Telephony and video conferencing technology pioneer, for about $68 million to expand Internet video and audio capabilities.
“We believe these claims are entirely without merit, and we’ll defend against them vigorously,” Andrew Pederson, a spokesman for Google, said by e-mail, Bloomberg / Businessweek reported.
