Title: ActiveVideo v. Verizon - Keys to the Success and Lessons Learned

Come hear about the Virginia trial in which San Jose-based ActiveVideo Networks obtained a judgment for $115 million against Verizon Communications for infringement of four interactive television patents. The Court recently awarded supplemental damages, bringing the total judgment to nearly $140 Million.

This is one of the largest patent verdicts in the country this decade, and the single biggest in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.
