holy shinkies! wish i bought this yesterday!

HOLMDEL, N.J., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vonage today announced that it has settled its pending patent dispute with Sprint Communications LP and entered into a licensing arrangement under Sprint's Voice over Packet ("VOP") patent portfolio. The parties have entered into an agreement to resolve this patent dispute as well as entered into a business relationship. In addition, Sprint has agreed to license Vonage its VOP portfolio.

The agreement is valued at $80 million, including $35 million for past use of license, $40 million for a fully paid future license, and $5 million in prepayment for services. On September 25, 2007, a Kansas jury handed down a verdict finding that Vonage had infringed six Sprint patents.

"We are pleased to resolve our dispute with Sprint and enter into a productive future relationship," said Sharon O'Leary, General Counsel for Vonage. "We believe this deal is good news for Vonage, our customers and our shareholders. It allows us to put this litigation behind us and continue to focus on our core business by removing the uncertainty of legal reviews and long term court action."

I bought in last week when the news about the violations broke, it was down at 0.0098. Oh what a sweet day it has been [Big Grin]

But they still have to deal with Verizons judgement. This still has plenty of room for upward movement.

I took a small position on todays pullback. I think it will run for the rest of the week. Natural to have some big profit taking on a 100+ jump on the big boards. But congrats on some risk free shares [Wink]
