Breaking News: Judge Overturns Jury Verdict In Akamai and Limelight Case

I've learned that a ruling has just come down in the Akamai and Limelight patent lawsuit with the judge overturning the jury verdict that was awarded in Akamai's favor. For now, Limelight will not have to pay any damages and I expect that Akamai will probably appeal the decision. More details to come, expect to see a ruling online on Saturday. I will post the link to the ruling as soon as I get it.

Updated Saturday: As expected, Akamai has said they will appeal the decision.

Updated Sunday: Limelight's official release on the ruling.

Updated Monday: Here is a copy of the ruling.

    thanks dan, any word from limelight?
    this seems like it would significantly increase the odds of Limelight getting acquired as this will help remove some of the legal issues.
