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??
