After what seemed like the end for Vonage, things are starting to look up

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on Friday blocked a partial injunction set against Vonage.  The injunction, which was set earlier that day, denied Vonage from signing up new customers.  After the decision was made, Vonage filed for and received an emergency stay of the injunction from the Federal Circuit, according to a press release.

The relief for Vonage came after a decision to let the judges consider all arguments before placing a permanent injunction.  A copy of a one-page report, released to CNET, states that Vonage will give Verizon until April 13th to respond to a request to lift the partial injunction during the appeal process, which was signed by Judge Paul Michel.

Judge Hilton also ordered Vonage to post an immediate $66 million bond on Friday while the appeal is carried out.

Verizon's opposition to anything more than a stay of permanent injunction made quite a stand also on Friday.  The company's attorneys claimed that as long as Vonage is able to sign on new customers, it was "leeching" Verizon's potential customer base.

Vonage will take a heavy blow if the request for the stay of permanent injunction is denied, forcing the VoIP company to cut-off its new member sign-ups.  The injunction added to payouts and legal fees are expected to topple the company
