News: Sprint Nextel sueing over VoIP patents

Sprint Nextel is sueing vonage, voiceglo and for infringing on VoIP patents. Sprint Nextel claims to have about 100 patents on VoIP technologies. Does anyone know which ones this article is talking about, and if so does asterisk have any of those features?

The reason I am asking is that the article is vague, Vonage uses a fairly standard codec set, I dont know about the others. So if its not codecs I wonder if its something so generic that the patent would be tossed out upon challenge.

Anyone thinking about doing a VoIP business may want to get more info before proceeding since they may not have the millinos vonage has to fight this.
