Verizon Goes For Vonage's Jugular
Asks Jury for $197 million & $4.93 per Vonage customer per month

Lawyers for Verizon made their final arguments today in a lawsuit that claims Vonage is infringing on five patents devised by Verizon engineers in the mid-1990s, patents which are central to VoIP service. Verizon is asking the jury for $197 million in damages
, but they're also asking that Vonage be forced to pay Verizon $4.93 per customer per month
if they want to continue using VoIP technology. Needless to say, with cable VoIP competitors breathing down Vonage's neck
, the company needs to win this case.
