The article reports that voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) provider Vonage was allowed by a U.S. Federal Circuit court to recruit new customers despite its court case with Verizon. According to the author, the Court of Appeals judge gave Vonage a permanent stay of a previous injunction that would have issued a ban for the company to sign up new customers. Jeffrey Citron, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO), acknowledged the consideration of the court of the merits of the company's case. He stated that the ruling should be given national attention because the consumers did not pay the consequences.
