Google sued for VolP

by alec on December 27, 2005

Om Malik reports that unknown Rates Technology Inc is suing Google for patent infringement related to Google Talk. Om points to the suit, which includes the two patents Google is alleged to have infringed. One patent is for a least cost routing appliance, while the other is for the database technology required to implement a least cost routing scheme.

Call me stupid, but I don’t see it. This looks like nothing more than another spurious patent suit. Google doesn’t make VolP hardware, nor do they perform least cost routing.

The patent wars are getting worse by the minute. They should begin dis-barring lawyers that bring forward ridiculous lawsuits.
