News: Reports: Jury finds Vonage infringed on Verizon patents

News: Reports: Jury finds Vonage infringed on Verizon patents:
"A jury has found Vonage infringed three Verizon patents."

Yet another example of complete BS patent law in action. Patents are suppose to protect Verizon from someone looking at their service and saying "Hey, let's steal this idea." when the concept of voicemail forwarding is in reality one of the most common things we know.

Patent law in this case instead is trying to make people Verizon customers who don't want to be Verizon customers, but Vonage customers. Patent law is getting completely asinine and devastating to our economy. The common person who wants to startup a business cannot avoid the various bear traps of patent infringement. This needs to change.
