announced that an order has been issued invalidating asserted claims of two key Verizon Communications patents in the year-long litigation initially filed by ActiveVideo in May, 2010.
In the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, the Honorable Raymond A. Jackson invalidated all asserted claims of the two patents: United States Patent No. 5,682,325, which was included in a suit against ActiveVideo Networks, and United States Patent No. 6,381,748, which was included in suits against both ActiveVideo Networks and Cablevision Systems Corporation.
"The decision is important to ActiveVideo and to our customers," said Jeff Miller, president and CEO of ActiveVideo Networks. "Obviously we're pleased at the elimination of Verizon's claims against our company, but it is equally important that the ruling removes claims by Verizon against our customer, Cablevision."
