Phone Co. Can Continue Services

On Dec. 12, 2005, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit stayed an injunction against Boston Communications Group Inc. (BCGI) giving the company and its millions of customers a much needed breath of fresh air after months of uncertainty.

The U.S. District Court of Massachusetts ordered BCGI to discontinue its prepaid wireless services on Oct. 17, 2005, to several U.S. carriers, including Cingular Wireless. The court said although BCGI's service infringes patents held by Freedom Wireless Inc., the company will be allowed to continue to sell its wireless services, which accounts for 70 percent of the company's revenue.
