The author reflects on the lawsuit filed by Verizon Communications against Vonage for patent infringement. According to the author, when Verizon asks for an injunction, maybe it intends the injunction as a negotiating ploy to get more royalties out of Vonage. He said that the lawsuit could be just the tip of the iceberg since neither the Verizon complaint nor any press reports suggest that Verizon made any attempt to negotiate patent royalties with Vonage before filing its lawsuit.
