The article reports that the Vonage Holdings Corp. has received a permanent stay of injunction from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. The company sought the stay following a decision by the District Court of Virginia, enjoining the company from using voice-over Internet protocol (VoIP) in signing up new customers. The permanent stay will allow Vonage to continue add new customers while it pursues an appeal to the ruling. According to Vonage, existing customers remain unaffected by the company's ongoing patent litigation.
