Good for the Goose...Cox Sued

Recalling the old proverb, "What's sauce for the goose, is sauce for the gander:"

In a development that is sure to bring a wry smile to those of us who witnessed the legal tactics used to delay the start of Lafayette's fiber to the home project, Cable Digital News notes that Cox has now been sued over a service it wants to offer.

The gist is that Verizon is claiming that Cox's VOIP phone network infringes on its patents. Verizon has already won a high-profile case against net independent phone provider Vonage over its use of the same patent-protected technology.

Another proverb: "He who lives by the sword, dies by the sword."
