The Supreme Court has asked the Solicitor General to weigh in on Limelight's (LLNW -1.3%) request to review an infringement ruling levied by a federal appeals court in the CDN owner's patent dispute with rival Akamai (AKAM -1.3%). Limelight says it's pleased with the request. The dispute revolves around the legal validity of induced patent infringement, as opposed to direct infringement. Akamai alleges Limelight is guilty of induced infringement by performing one step of a patented content delivery method, and then getting customers to perform the second.
