Akamai, Limelight Battle to Continue, Analyst Says

By Sergio Published on .

FBR analyst David Hilal predicts that the patent war between content delivery networks Akamai Technologies and Limelight Networks isn’t likely to go away soon, Silicon Alley Insider reports. A jury earlier this year found Limelight guilty of infringing an MIT-owned patent licensed to Akamai. Further legal wrangling, including an injunction and appeal, could mean the matter isn’t resolved until 2010, the analyst wrote. He added that he doesn’t expect Akamai to buy its smaller rival in the near future.
