- The Supreme Court has ruled Limelight (LLNW) is "not liable for inducing infringement" of an Akamai (AKAM) CDN patent. (court ruling - .pdf)
- The SC's ruling overturns a guilty verdict against Limelight from a federal's appeals court. The case was closely watched by tech companies who feared an Akamai victory would open the door to a large number of frivolous lawsuits from litigants claiming induced infringement.
- Google, Oracle, Cisco, and other tech giants backed Limelight in the dispute, as did the White House.
- LLNW +1.7% AH.
