Today, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit issued an order regarding Akamai's petition for rehearing and/or rehearing en banc. The Federal Court order denied the petition for rehearing, granted the petition for rehearing en banc, vacated the opinion of the Panel, and reinstated the appeal. The order set a briefing schedule and stated that a time and date for oral argument would be announced later.
As it has throughout this litigation, Limelight will defend its position during the en banc process that it does not infringe the '703 patent and that the judgment of the district court should be affirmed.
Limelight believes the decision of the panel was correct and should be affirmed en banc. This was not an issue of first impression for the panel - its ruling affirmed the Court's precedent from earlier decisions. Limelight Networks welcomes the opportunity to assist the Court in addressing this area of the law.
