Verizon (VZ +0.4%) has sent a cease and desist letter to Netflix (NFLX +1%) over error messages the company is reported to be displaying placing blame at the feet of Verizon for a crowded network.

The company says there is no basis to make the claim that it's solely responsible for the issue.

A Verizon spokesperson calls the error message a "publicity stunt."
