Court Denies Akamai's Request For Permanent Injunction Against Limelight

This story was written by Rafat Ali.
The fight in the CDN space continues: In a mixed verdict for Limelight Networks (NSDQ: LLNW), the U.S. District Court in Massachusetts refused to issue a permanent injunction against it while the case is on appeal and did not give Akamai (NSDQ: AKAM) summary judgment in the case, as the bigger CDN was asking for. But, Limelight also did not get its motion for a new trial or a revised judgment in the $45.5 million verdict for Akamai that was handed down earlier this year.

The judge denied Akamai's motion for a permanent injunction as premature, Limelight said. Some more details here.
