Qwest Communications, Avaya, Panasonic, and Yahoo! have all entered into patent license agreements with Klausner Technologies for the company's visual voicemail products.
These latest signing bring the number of companies to license Klausner Technologies’ Visual Voicemail patents to 33. Current licensees of the Visual Voicemail patents include major U.S. and European mobile operators, handset manufacturers, VOIP/cable operators, and other providers of visual voicemail services. Panasonic is including the technology as part of its Choicemail DECT cordless telephone answering devices.
"Our patented technology lets consumers view, prioritize, and select voice messages from their mobile phones or via the Internet," said Judah Klausner, CEO of Klausner Technologies.
All four companies had been named as defendants in a patent infringement lawsuit brought by Klausner Technologies in the Eastern District of Texas. The parties have settled their outstanding litigation and the cases have been dismissed.
