Sprint Nextel has sued VoIP providers Vonage and VoiceGlo for infringing seven of its patents that have to do with VoIP. The company isn't being specific, just that "The patents protect a series of innovations that enable the processing and delivery of packetized voice and data communications, including Voice over Internet Protocol ("VoIP") communications." The company says it tried to negotiate licensing deals with the VoIP providers, but couldn't come to an agreement, so it turned to the courts. Sounds like another potential problem for Vonage in the runup to its rumored IPO.
