All Your Favorite Websites Are Getting Sued (Except Us, Thankfully)!

| Filed under: Legal MattersYouTube

Did Google, YouTube, Apple, AOL, Ebay, Netflix, Facebook, Yahoo, and more violate a patent without permission??

That's what Interval Licensing LLC's Paul Allen says. He's claiming that Interval provided the initial research funding for Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, which basically "resulted in Google." He also says that all the above websites used his Internet browsing technology, a patent in which he owns, between the years 2000 and 2004 and is now suing them, asking for unspecified damages, as well as an injunction that would prevent the websites from using his search engine technology or "a royalty for post-judgment infringement."

Crazy!!

Could this mean a huge change is coming in the way we use the Internet??

    Wow. Someone needs to get their head of out their asses. If this patent is yours, then you've made billions of dollars allready and you want more? Suck it up. i'd be pissed too but these sites have made the internet more fun and you after all these years decide to do this now? Greedy much.

    Don't worry Perez. You've been sued before and no doubt will be again.

    What a douche of a commentary.

    Bullshit!! how can you patent that? That's like saying I patent videos on the internet. C'mon!

    Wasn't Windows 95 a blatant rip off of the Apple Computers of the 80s? This guy has got a lot of nerve

    Oh boohoo! You have billions of dollars and we have the right to do what we want. I think he's just jealous that, God forbid, those websites are extremely popular, like Microsoft.

    Finally something might pay off for Bill; he's lost so much with all of his wacky investments.



  13. 13

    Good for him.

    For all of you saying that he's being greedy, well, he's allowed to be. It's fucking business after all. If he wants to make a lot of money off of stuff he already owns, then he should be able to at least try.
