Content delivery network provider Limelight Networks (LLNW) issued a press release Monday confirming that Level 3 Communications (LVLT) has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against the company, and addressed Level 3's assertions:

Limelight Networks is aware of the allegations made against it, believes that these allegations are without merit, and intends to defend itself vigorously. Limelight Networks confirms that it respects the intellectual property rights of others and does not knowingly make use of any third party intellectual property without consent or authorization.

As we noted last week, Level 3 is asserting that Limelight is infringing patents that Level 3 acquired when it purchased a content delivery network from Savvis Communications (SVVS) earlier this year. Limelight is also defending itself against a patent infringement suit filed by Akamai Technologies (AKAM).
