AT&T Clears Record Re: Vonage

I received this e-mail just now:


 (Background: Some incorrect news stories have been circulating claiming that Vonage, an AT&T VoIP competitor, prevailed in its lawsuit against AT&T for use of the AT&T CallVantage® Service name. This statement will set the record straight.)

The following statement may be attributed to AT&T:

 BEDMINSTER, N.J. - The Vonage lawsuit against AT&T for use of AT&T's registered mark, "AT&T CallVantage®" Service, was withdrawn by Vonage several months ago prior to any court hearing pursuant to a settlement. The lawsuit settled on the basis that AT&T would use the mark as registered and Vonage, the plaintiff in the case, would transfer to AT&T certain improperly registered domain names.

Vonage disclosed to the media a partial version of the terms of the settlement in breach of the confidentiality provision in the settlement. AT&T is simply correcting the record.
