Sprint Wants to Settle Pa­tent Suit

The Washington Post - - Local -

Sprint Nex­tel of Re­ston is seek­ing to settle a pa­tent-in­fringe­ment law­suit it filed against Paetec Hold­ing In­ter­net phone call­ing. Sprint sued Paetec, which fo­cuses on cor­po­rate cus­tomers, and three other com­pa­nies Jan. 24, ac­cus­ing them of in­fring­ing six patents. Sprint is seek­ing cash from the com­pa­nies as well as a court or­der pre­vent­ing them from us­ing the patented tech­nol­ogy.

Sep­a­rately, Sprint said it would con­tinue to sup­port Di­rect Con­nect, its Nex­tel-branded walkie-talkie net­work, which in­dus­try ob­servers had spec­u­lated the com­pany might shut­ter.
