Stupid for Akamai to have gone for a legal attack of LLNW... instead of just buying them!
Look at all the waisted money on court costs... only to loose! Shows poor judgement and poor management!
Limelight has a fortress balance sheet with over $110mm in net cash on its balance sheet which is approximately 50% of its market capitalization. To put it in perspective, Akamai could have bought Limelight for under $150mm at its current price level ridding itself of a competitor and picking up more than $150mm in annual revenues. Given Akamai sells at nearly six times trailing revenues, this seems a better option than a legal attack.
