AT&T to pay $27mn in U-verse damages

AT&T has lost its court battle with US firm Two-Way Media over the alleged infringement of video streaming patents held by the latter, and has been ordered to pay US$ 27.5mn in damages.

The case concerned the infringement of two patents by AT&T’s IPTV service ‘U-verse TV’, covering live streaming technology and the recording of detailed customer usage data.

Two-Way Media has previously sued content delivery specialists Akamai Technologies and Limelight Networks over the same technology, and obtained out-of-court settlements from both.
