Microsoft settles Skype service related patent infringement

Microsoft made agreement to pay VirnetX Holdings Corp. $23 million and settle patent claims over secure communication networks related to Skype service which allows instant messaging and internet calling. The agreement came after U.S. District Judge Leonard Davis in Texas, issued order giving definitions to key terms in VirnetX patents.


In yet another pending case, between VirnetX and Apple Inc. relating to VPN on Demand and FaceTime features, Virnet is waiting for proceedings from Texas court.
