    Skype Sued In for Patent Infringement

    WILMINGTON, Delaware (Reuters) - Internet video phone company Skype Inc was sued in U.S. federal court Thursday for infringing the patents of a Luxembourg company, which has filed similar lawsuits against Skype in Europe.

    The lawsuit in the District of Delaware comes a month after Microsoft Corp said it planned to buy Skype for $8.5 billion.

    The complaint by Via Vadis LLC centers on two patents for accessing and managing data in computer systems. It is seeking damages and wants the court to order Skype to stop infringing its technology.

    The company has already brought legal action against Skype in Germany and Luxembourg.

    The Luxembourg court issued a search order to gather evidence and inspect Skype's offices in Luxembourg, according to the complaint, although Skype has appealed and refused to share its source code.

    Skype said it did not comment on litigation.

    The case is Via Vadis LLC v Skype Inc et al, U.S. District Court, District of Delaware.

    Why weren't they sued before MSFT bought them out? Color me suspicious.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!
