Limelight Reworks Software for Microsoft CDN

Limelight Networks’ loss to rival Akamai in a patent lawsuit has forced Limelight to rewrite the content delivery network software it licensed to Microsoft Corp. In an SEC filing Friday, Limelight (LLNW) reported that it had amended its agreement with Microsoft (MSFT) to address a February jury verdict in which Limelight was ordered to pay Akami (AKAM) $45 million for infringing its patents.

Microsoft is building its own content delivery network (CDN), with Limelight providing software and engineering support. The August 2007 agreement between the companies was updated on Oct. 1 to address the Akamai ruling.
