Federal Circuit Revives Limelight v. Akamai Patent Case

Limelight Networks Inc. is responsible for infringing rival Akamai Technologies Inc.'s patent for managing Web images and video, a U.S. appeals court ruled, reviving a $45 million verdict against the company. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in the District of Columbia said Limelight's control over its customers' use of its services to deliver media content over the Internet meant the company was liable for the infringement.
