Ouch! This Had To Hurt!

Vonage to pay $58 million in Verizon patent case
Vonage, which provides a service that turns broadband connections into phone lines, was found by a Virginia jury to have infringed patents that cover the technology used to connect these voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) calls to the regular phone network, as well as some features for implementing call-waiting and voice-mail services.
The monetary damages and the ongoing royalties awarded Verizon could have a significant impact on Vonage, if it doesn't come up with a solution that doesn't infringe the patents. The Internet phone service provider has yet to turn a profit.
I would say if you have this service, you might want to go looking for a new one! You know I always thought there was something fishy about this Company. Good thing I'm not getting paid to write them a review..LMAO!
