Forgent Patent Troll Loses Again

Forgent Networks, a patent troll, got the slap down by a TX jury in May when it invalidated a patent Forgent held regarding video teleconferencing over telephone lines, and today, its motion for a new trial against EchoStar was denied. In fact, the court awarded EchoStar $90k in costs. Forgent probably isn’t crying that much though, it already extorted $28m from other defendants. Forgent made a business out of cheating companies for jpeg use — ’til their patent was largely invalidated on that front as well — via Slashdot
