VoIP News: Net2Phone Sues Skype over VoIP Patent

Online VoIP provider, Net2Phone Inc., has initiated legal action against Skype and its parent company, eBay Inc., claiming that the Skype software infringes on one of its point-to-point IP communication patents.

The lawsuit was filed at a U.S. District Court in Newark, New Jersey, seeking a permanent injunction as well as unspecified financial damages.

Skype, eBay, and IDC, which purchased Net2Phone in February, have all declined to comment on the pending litigation, which could potentially result in major changes to the internet VoIP market.
