Claims by Sprint Nextel

Sprint Nextel announced that one of its subsidiaries has sued Vonage and Voiceglo regarding their patents on VoIP. But the curt press release raises more questions. For starters, we are not told the specific subsidiary and what are the patents (but seven of them, we are told) and the nature of their claims. So we can not answer questions like, whether this will affect the whole VoIP industry, will we be able to work around these patents and more importantly whether the claims can withstand prior art challenges.

But meanwhile, lots of attention is paid to Sprint Nextel. So one wonders what the real story here is.
