Lucent sued by DATA RACE
Call-barring for Virtual Telephones
DATA RACE is suing Lucent technologies for patent infringement. The company is asking the Court to issue a preliminary injunction prohibiting Lucent from marketing and selling the Virtual Telephone system. It has filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court in San Antonio, Texas, seeking damages and a permanent injunction prohibiting Lucent Technologies from violating the Company's intellectual property rights. The patent, called "System and Method for Providing a Remote User with a Virtual Presence to an Office," was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in June this year.
