Google highlights Global IP Solutions technology in Gmail offering – but why?

Installation of Google voice and videomail chat reveals the line “Google voice and video chat incorporates technologies from Global IP Solutions and Vidyo, Inc. which are covered under pending U.S. and foreign patent applications.”

So, what does this mean, exactly?

Google could have simply said “You’re ready to go” and left it at that, but why is it invoking the whole patent issue?

For minimalist Google, it is an intriguing line that begs the question: Does Google expect third-parties to try to shoehorn in on Google Voice or its codec technologies?
