Limelight Settles Two-Way Patent Case

September 18th, 2008 by · 4 Comments

In a filing with the SEC today, Limelight announced they have come to a settlement with Two-Way Media over the patent suit filed by the latter in April.  The patent in question was an old one from 1996, and Limelight joins Level 3 (via Cable & Wireless long ago) as a licensee of the patent.  Two-way is apparently still suing Akamai and AT&T over the same patent, which sure does seem to have legs.

One has to wonder if Limelight will now move to settle the suit filed by Level 3 last winter as well.  I seem to recall that one was supposed to go to trial this fall?  Somehow though I doubt it, even if Limelight wanted to I think Level 3’s price will be too high.
