The suit, filed in the U.S. District court in Wilmington, Del., alleges that Vonage violated 12 of Nortel's patents relating to its Internet phone services, including 911 and 411 services and click-to-call. Nortel is seeking damages and an injunction on the use of the technologies by Vonage. "From our perspective defending our intellectual properly rights is certainly a top priority for Nortel," said Nortel spokesman Mohammed Nakhooda. Vonage became involved in the dispute in 2006 when it acquired Digital Packet Licensing and three patents it held. Those patents were the foundation for a suit DPL filed against Toronto-based Nortel alleging patent infringement in 2004.
