A federal jury Tuesday found Verizon infringed patents for video-on-demand technology, delivering a big-dollar victory for a small tech company founded by a Virginia Beach man.
“We’re ecstatic,” one company lawyer told The Virginian-Pilot. The jury had been hearing testimony for three weeks in the case that focused on Verizon’s FiOS cable television service.
In May, a judge invalidated Verizon’s countersuit against plaintiff ActiveVideo.
A Verizon exec tells The Wall Street Journal the company does not plan to make any payments until an appeals court reviews the verdict.
