Skype faces patent lawsuit from Net2Phone

Luxembourg-based Skype is facing a lawsuit filed by Net2Phone, alleging that Skype has infringed on Net2Phone's patent on point-to-point Internet calling, an Associated Press report said.

The report said Net2Phone sued Skype and its parent company, eBay, charging that Net2Phone had lost an unspecified amount of money as a result. Net2Phone, a unit of Newark-based IDT, filed the case at a US District Court in Newark.

Skype spokeswoman Alicia Divittorio said the company did not comment on litigation, the report said.
