Out of the Woods? Vonage Settles All Outstanding Patent Lawsuits

After getting sued by all of the major telecommunications providers in rapid succession, Vonage might finally be over and doe with patent issues. They've recently settled a suit from Nortel Networks for a cross-licensing agreement instead of cash, a boon considering the big bucks they've had to shell out to companies like AT&T. Given their cash-poor state and some recent reliability issues, it seems that only a hatred for traditional phone companies and price-gouging by new cable entrants is keeping the provider afloat. I've overall been happy with Vonage despite some of their tech support shortcomings, but I've been a bit spooked by the possibility that they'll pull a SunRocket sometime in the near future.
