Verizon faces media storm from targeted advertising patent
By Steve Donohue, FierceCable - December 7, 2012
Verizon posted this statement Wednesday on its policy blog. "There's been some discussion today about a highly speculative news report from this morning, that no doubt is giving drive-time talk radio--not to mention tech blogs--something to discuss," wrote Libby Jacobson, the company's director of digital policy communications. "Verizon is a company that prizes innovation, and we take pride in the many innovators whose work is represented in our patents and patent applications. That said, we don't comment on pending patent applications; it's all interesting, but as most folks know, a patent application is very different from a product or service or device actually coming to market any time soon," she added.
