Akamai Technologies, Inc. v. Limelight Networks, Inc., 09-1372

By FindLaw Staff | Last updated on
Content Delivery Network service provider's patent infringement suit

Akamai Technologies, Inc. v. Limelight Networks, Inc., 09-1372, concerned a challenge to the district court's judgment as a matter of law overturning a jury verdict of infringement by defendant of claims 19-21 and 34 of '703 patent and construction of certain claims of '645 and '413 patents, in plaintiff's suit for infringement of patents related to method claims directed to a content delivery services that delivers the base document of a web site from a content provider's computer while individual embedded objects of the website are stored on an object-by-object basis on a Content Delivery Network (CDN).

In affirming the judgment, the court held that, because the defendant did not perform all of the steps of the asserted method claims, and the record contains no basis on which to attribute to defendant the actions of its customers who carried out the other steps, district court properly granted JMOL of noninfringement to defendant.  The court also held that the district court properly entered judgment of noninfringement of the '645 and '413 patents based on its rulings on claim construction.
