BCGI Gets Reprieve From Court

A federal court has issued a stay on an injunction issued against Boston Communications Group Inc (BCGI) in October. A lower court had ruled in favor of Freedom Wireless in a patent suit against BCGI and Cingular. That court ruled the companies were violating Freedom's prepaid patents and ordered them to shut down Cingular's TDMA prepaid service within 90 days and pay Freedom Wireless 2.5 cents per prepaid minute used in the meantime. The injunction relieves BCGI and Cingular of the 2.5 cent per minute charge and allows the companies to continue service until the appeal is heard.
