November 30, 2015 11:16 AM EST

Limelight Networks (NASDAQ: LLNW) announced that they have filed a lawsuit in the Eastern District of Virginia against Akamai and XO Communications for infringing six of their patents.

The complaint indicates that the patents being infringed cover a broad range of inventions that are critical to the effective and efficient delivery of bytes by a content delivery network. Limelight believes their patents are very strong and this lawsuit will provide significant relief and future protection against any illegal competition.

“Akamai and XO Communications have been relying on our patented inventions to unfairly compete with us in a dynamic and growing marketplace,” said Bob Lento, chief executive officer of Limelight. “Their blatant disregard of our patent rights and the resulting harm to our business forced us to file these claims.”

Limelight has retained top IP trial lawyer Matt Powers and his team from Tensegrity Law Group and Maya Eckstein from Hunton & Williams to represent the Company in this litigation.
