Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - October 4, 2007

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

October 4, 2007

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. 

First, let's catch up on some Vonage news. Let's go straight to two Vonage Forum threads, one about a possible Vonage voicemail glitch, and the other which is concerned with what could have been a router-related Proxy Name issue  We'll also check in on Vonage's stock price.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

Blogger Says Footnote in Court Decision Could Give Vonage a Break

A blog post by Russell Shaw of ZDNet, one of the Voip bloggers I read regularly, points to some possible good news related to Vonage and their patent infringement judgments and their related issues.

A footnote near the end of last week’s partial remand decision by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, first found by University of Missouri law professor Dennis Crouch, could be interpreted as a legal recourse for giving Vonage a break in its patent disputes with SprintNextel and Verizon.

 Prof. Crouch, who writes the Patently-O blog, has this to say:

 The recent Verizon v. Vonage majority opens the door to an expanded use of what I would call delayed injunctive relief. In particular, the two-member majority (JJ Dyk & Gajarsa) explains in Footnote 12 that the district court “should have” considered whether to allow the adjudged infringer Vonage more time to implement a workaround before enforcing an injunction.

“One factor that is relevant to the balance of the hardships required by the Supreme Court’s decision in eBay was not considered by the district court, namely whether the district court should have allowed time for Vonage to implement a workaround that would avoid continued infringement of the ’574 and ’711 patents before issuing its injunction.”

The appellate panel also notes that Verizon’s interest in putting Vonage “out of business” is not a legitimate interest — rather, the court’s obligation is to protect Verizon’s patent interests without disrupting other business activity.

“Verizon had a cognizable interest in obtaining an injunction to put an end to infringement of its patents; it did not have a cognizable interest in putting Vonage out of business.”

Prof. Crouch noted that:

Historically, a finding of patent infringement resulted in a relatively quick form of complete injunctive relief requiring that any adjudged infringement cease immediately. The Supreme Court’s EBay v. MercExchange opinion considered injunctive relief a yes/no decision — either an injunction is granted or denied based on the traditional four-factor analysis. Here, the CAFC appears to be reformulating debate to focus on a timing question — i.e., if not now, at what point will the four-factors favor the patent holder?

Hey, this sounds important. So why the footnote as opposed to an articulation of this information in the actual decision main text?

“In this case, the Court’s words are relegated to a footnote because Vonage never requested a workaround period,” Prof. Couch explains. ” And, in addition, sufficient time has already passed since the verdict.

Prof. Couch then cites this language from the footnote:

“Vonage made no request for a workaround period to the district court, and Vonage has already had several months since the district court’s judgment to implement a workaround.”

Hey notice I said “could.” One interpretation of that last section of quoted footnote could be interpreted as wondering out loud why Vonage didn’t put a workaround request on the fast track to that Court. Remains to be seen how big or small a leap it will be between what sounds as a hesitation-related scolding and a denial of a break for Vonage in their patent infringement disputes.

New Vonage Forum Member ralph_i has a question which he's turned into a post that he entitles, Cannot play Voice mail with Windows Media Player - Codec....

Here's the post he made to open his thread with:

"OK, I know I am not the only one with this issue but - I cannot find a resolution and I really need to.

I Get an email from vonage, it has a voicemail attached with a .wav extension.
I open it -
Windows media player opens
Get an error:

An audio codec is needed to play this file. To determine if this codec is available to download from the Web, click Web Help.

Click web help
takes you to this link

The page says
Windows Media Player Error Message Help
You've encountered an error message C00D10D1 while using Windows Media Player. The following information might help you troubleshoot the issue.

Codec is missing
Windows Media Player cannot play the file (or cannot play either the audio or video portion of the file) because the Microsoft CCITT u-Law (7) codec is not installed on your computer.

The missing codec might be available to download from the Internet. To search for the Microsoft CCITT u-Law (7) codec, see

I have spent 3 hours on the web and with Vonage support - they said I should re-install - yeah right

Windows XP service pack 2 - all updates
I CAN play all other .WAV files on my PC - Just cannot play Vonage based .WAV files.

Also cannot play them on my windows based cell phone...."

After reading that post, fellow Vonage Forum Member Darrell_G follows up with a question and suggestion to ralph_i:

"Which version of Windows Media player are you using?," Darrell_G asks ralph_i. "As the error message stated, you're missing a codec. Go here and download and install the full version of K-Lite Codec pack 3.4.5 Full"

Next, ralph_i answers:

I am on Windows Media player version 11. That worked - the download - During the install I only chose windows media classic and .wav pack and then the tools at the "bottom - I can know play my voicemail on my PC. Thank you!," ralph_i answers.

But then ralph_i asks another question: 

"Any ideas how to get it to work on my pocket pc?? (Cingular 8125 mobile phone. When I play them on my phone I get the error Windows Media Cannot play the audio stream: the audio format is not supported. thanks!"

On Wednesday, Vonage Forum Member Sagaris69 decided to open a new Vonage Forum thread which he went about naming, Link 624 Service Unavailable Cannot Resolve proxy Name.

Here's his thread-opening post, along with his very important Vonage set-up and test results information:


Location: Windsor, On, Canada
ISP: Bell Sympatico DSL
Modem: SpeedStream 5360
Route: D-Link DI 624 Wireless Broadband Router
Vonage Adapter: V-Phone
Network Setup: Modem --> Router --> PC (V-Phone plugged in PC of course)

I just got my V-Phone from a local vendor and activated everything through Vonage and i have not been able to get it to work it will just say "Service Unavailable Cannot Resolve Proxy name" I've been playing around with port forwarding but cannot resolve the issue can anyone help? I am on a static ip.

But you know what? As happens from time to time here on the Vonage Forum, the thread-opening Member comes back with a post answering his own question.

"I resolved the issue," Sagaris69 writes as a follow-up. "There was nothing actually wrong with the router and the V Phone, i am using a Killer NIC Gaming Card which seemed to be the problem, after I switched the cable into a different connection it works fine and clear."
