DNT, a unit of Acacia Research filed a patent lawsuit against Verizon Wireless, Novatel, and other wireless network operators over the way wireless modem cards access the carriers' networks. The patent was filed in 1990 and spoke about an auto-dialer mechanism for use on touch-tone phones. DNT hoped to win $170 million in damages. The federal jury declared DNT's patents invalid for three reasons, and absolved Verizon and the other plaintiffs of any wrong doing.

Good! Teach these patent squatters a lesson....

Use it or lose it! Quit making your business about suing others!
Innovation, not litigation!
