Intellectual Property, The Other Defition of IP

It's funny... I have been writing about the enhanced services made possible via IP communications for over a decade. To some degree, these services are here and while I think there is a great deal of room to go in this area, it seems that companies find it easier to use patent litigation as their preferred enhanced services revenue generator.

Basically using the other definition of IP, intellectual property.

Case in point is Verizon who is suing cable companies now. First there was Cox and now Charter. Fresh off a positive interaction with Vonage, this makes logical sense. One wonders however if anyone wants to get into a patent war with a cable company. They have deep pockets and lots of their own patents to countersue with.
