雅虎正式起诉Facebook专利侵权,要求索赔

    北京时间3月13日消息,据路透社报道报道,雅虎周一正式递交诉讼,指控Facebook侵犯了其网络广告发布方式和系统等相关的10项技术专利,这也成为首起科技巨鳄与社交媒体之间展开的专利侵权诉讼。

据悉,起诉书已正式递交至位于加利福尼亚州圣何塞联邦法庭。随着这一诉讼的展开,标志着此前由苹果、微软和摩托罗拉移动之间在智能电话、平板电脑及其他高科技方面的专利侵权诉讼进一步扩大。

雅虎对Facebook提起诉讼,正值Facebook刚刚公布其高达1000亿美元IPO计划之后的敏感时期。雅虎这一举措可能会给Facebook造成难以估量的影响。

Facebook发言人乔纳森·斯劳(Jonathan Thaw)称,Facebook已从媒体上获悉这一消息。该发言人还称,“我们对雅虎非常失望。作为Facebook长期以来的合作伙伴,雅虎从与Facebook的合作中受益匪浅,然而却采取诉讼手段来进行回馈。”

雅虎在一份邮件声明中表示,雅虎相信自己会胜诉。“当前不幸的是,与Facebook的争议仍未得到有效解决,因此我们必须向联邦法院寻求赔偿。”

雅虎在诉讼中表示,请求法庭颁布禁令,禁止Facebook继续对雅虎专利侵权,并提出索赔要求。

雅虎在诉状中还称,其实“Facebook创始人兼CEO Mr. Mark Zuckerberg已经关注到Facebook的创意并非新奇,而是基于其他公司的理念。”, Facebook是采用雅虎技术来发展自己在线广告“最为拙劣的站点之一”。

多家社交网络公司包括Facebook在内,在计划IPO进程中都遭致了来自小公司的专利侵权诉讼。这些所谓专利维权的小公司,通常采取买断一项专利,然后趁社交网站IPO时进行专利侵权诉讼,以获取一笔不菲的专利授权许可费用。但像苹果这样的大公司出现尚属首次。

在上个月,雅虎曾表示,Facebook对其10-20项专利构成侵权,这些专利技术包含于Facebook的广告、隐私控制、新闻源和消息服务等领域,如果Facebook拒不支付相关专利费用,雅虎将对此诉诸法律。分析人士认为,作为互联网领域先驱的雅虎公司,目前或正在考虑新的战略事宜,雅虎可能会采取要求Facebook支付专利费用的方法来提升其价值.

(Reuters) - Yahoo Inc sued Facebook Inc over 10 patents that include methods and systems for advertising on the Web, opening the first major legal battle among big technology companies in social media.

The lawsuit, filed in a San Jose, California federal court on Monday, marks a major escalation of patent litigation that has already swept up the smartphone and tablet sectors and high-tech stalwarts such as Apple Inc, Microsoft Corp and Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc.

Yahoo's patent lawsuit follows Facebook's announcement of plans for an initial public offering that could value the company at about $100 billion.

Facebook spokesman Jonathan Thaw said Facebook learned of the lawsuit through the media.

"We're disappointed that Yahoo, a longtime business partner of Facebook and a company that has substantially benefited from its association with Facebook, has decided to resort to litigation," he said.

In an emailed statement, Yahoo said it is confident it will prevail.

"Unfortunately, the matter with Facebook remains unresolved and we are compelled to seek redress in federal court," the company said in a statement.

Yahoo, one of the Web's pioneering companies, has seen its revenues decline in recent years at a time when rivals such as Facebook and Google have thrived. In January, Yahoo appointed former PayPal President Scott Thompson as its new chief executive, replacing Carol Bartz, who was fired in September.

Yahoo said late last month it was seeking licensing fees from Facebook over its patents and that other companies have already agreed to such licensing deals.

IPO COMPANIES VULNERABLE

Colleen Chien, a professor at Santa Clara Law in Silicon Valley, said companies are usually more vulnerable to patent suits when they are in the IPO process.

"As a general proposition, when a company is about to go public, the last thing it needs is to get involved in a knock-down, drag out litigation fight," Chien said.

"So that might make Facebook more willing to resolve its differences with Yahoo."

Yahoo has used similar timing to its advantage in the past. Google agreed to issue shares to Yahoo nine days before Google went public in 2004 in exchange for a license to Yahoo's patents. Google later took a $201 million non-cash charge related to the transaction.

In deciding to sue Facebook, Yahoo has retained the same law firm, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, used by Google and other manufacturers in many Android-related smartphone patent cases. Google is a player in social media with its Google+ service.

Quinn Emanuel also counts social gaming service Zynga Inc as a client, according to the law firm's website.

Yahoo has not said whether it will bring patent claims against other social networking companies and a Google spokesman declined to comment on Quinn Emanuel's involvement. Zynga also declined to comment.

In the lawsuit, Yahoo says Facebook was considered "one of the worst performing sites for advertising" prior to adapting Yahoo's ideas.

"Mr. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's founder and CEO, has conceded that the design of Facebook is not novel and is based on the ideas of others," the lawsuit said.

ONLINE ADVERTISING

Only two of the 10 patents at issue are directly related to social networking technology. Most focus on online advertising, including methods for preventing "click fraud," as well as privacy and technology for customizing the information users see on a Web page.

"If what Yahoo is saying is literally true, then it seems like a lot of companies would be liable," said Shubha Ghosh, a professor who specializes in intellectual property at The University of Wisconsin Law School. But he added, much would depend on whether a judge defines the patents broadly or narrowly.

Several social networking companies, including Facebook, have seen an uptick in patent claims asserted against them as they move through the IPO process.

However, most of those lawsuits have been filed by patent aggregators that buy up intellectual property to squeeze value from it via licensing deals and none by a large tech company such as Yahoo.

The lawsuit is a change for Yahoo because the company has never initiated offensive patent litigation against such a large publicly traded company, according to a search of federal court dockets on legal database Westlaw, a Thomson Reuters unit.

A classic defense for companies targeted with patent claims is to threaten a countersuit using its own patents. But Yahoo possesses far more patents than Facebook. According to a U.S. government database, Yahoo has over 3,300 patents and published patent applications, while Facebook has 160.

The case in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California is Yahoo Inc. v. Facebook Inc., 12-cv-1212.

Rubin has been a full-time starter for most of his seven-year career, all of it spent with the Cleveland Browns. He started all 59 games he played between 2010-13 and 11 of 13 games last season. He had a career-high 83 tackles and five sacks in 2011, but has not approached those numbers since the Browns switched to a 3-4 defense.
"I think it was just a confidence thing," special teams coordinator Mike Priefer said. "He''s just got to go out there and swing his leg through and get his confidence back. We sent him down to TCF yesterday and they filmed it, he had a great workout down there. He will be fine."
"I take a lot of pride in that," Castonzo said last month. "I spend a lot of time in the offseason, not just trying to improve myself as a player, but doing stuff that is going to keep me healthy, to protect different joints and to protect things. It''s all offseason which kind of allows me to be successful during the season"
The Seattle Seahawks tight end has missed each of the last two seasons after suffering torn Achilles tendons during offseason workouts. McCoy tore his right Achilles during organized team activities in May 2013 then tore his left Achilles early in training camp last August.
As jurors weigh the evidence against former New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez, here''s a look at some of the key moments in his murder trial stemming from the June 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of his fiancee:
"We''ve had some pretty good days in the past, but if we want to have a good outcome on Thursday night we''re going to have to be at our best," Brady said.

Players who are at least three years out of high school can declare for the draft by Thursday. The draft is April 30-May 2 in Chicago.
It was just one post in a flood of them questioning the move that comes after a hefty offseason defensive investment in free agency.
"I feel like a lot of them will get some opportunities someplace else," Elway said.
"I know he''s going to be beating my door down to be out there every day. But I think it''ll be good for him. It''ll be good for the team and for Brock to be able to go out there every third or fourth day and prove to the guys he can run the football team also."
Butler''s high school football coach Alonzo Stevens said part of the player''s popularity comes from his unlikely rise to fame. The people in the town can relate to him and his imperfect past.
During his news conference Monday to announce the firings of coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik, Johnson was asked about not being able to sign Revis last offseason. Johnson said he didn''t think he could land him, based on his previous experience with Revis'' agents.

Meyer also re-iterated that he expects quarterback Braxton Miller, who injured his shoulder, to be part of the team next season.
Kris Brannon, a local superfan best known as "Sonics Guy," has been wearing his green-and-gold and his impressive afro to events around the Northwest in the years since the team became the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008. He put the Super Bowl loss in perspective.
Switching teams in pro football isn''t as easy as it is in other sports, so there''s usually a scarcity of midseason moves, and even Sunday''s rash of injuries to key players served to quash talks rather than ignite talks.
Following consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Hartline had just 39 receptions last season for 474 yards and two touchdowns. He has 298 career receptions for 4,243 yards and 12 TDs. Hartline made 69 starts for the Dolphins, including every game last season.
Thomas'' status is less certain.
Safety Troy Polamalu and cornerback Ike Taylor retired when it became apparent they were not a part of the team''s 2015 plans, and defensive end Brett Keisel was cut.  Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau did not have his contract renewed, with longtime heir apparent Keith Butler promoted from linebackers coach to replace the Hall of Famer.

"I was inspired that somebody from Vicksburg is doing great things, and I wanted to show my appreciation to him and use my talent to draw a picture of him," Moffett said.
The Falcons were again their own worst enemy. They lost three fumbles and threw an interception, running their turnover total to 12 in the past four games. They also were penalized 11 times for 124 yards.
Groves is a seven-year journeyman who had three starts in 16 games with Tennessee last season. Groves was selected by Jacksonville in the second round of the 2008 draft and spent two seasons playing for the Jaguars. He also has played for Oakland, Arizona and Cleveland, and has 32 starts in 100 career games.
"He was able to beat the system in ways and means where others were complicit and others understood what he was trying to do. And I''m not just talking about his team. There was a healthy disrespect for the rules. I don''t think that will happen again," Howman said. "We spent a lot of time, a lot of money. We fended off a lot of legal action (that was) all for nothing. And we''re not going to be compensated. We haven''t even been apologized to, and that''s regrettable."
Undrafted rookie La''el Collins, who was a projected first-round pick when his name surfaced in a police investigation over a woman''s death and he wasn''t cleared until after the draft, was already getting significant practice time because of Leary''s injury. Martin''s absence will put more focus on him.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ?The veterans are trying to do what they can to get the Colts'' season on track.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) ?In the afterglow of a playoff victory over Pittsburgh last weekend, Ravens coach John Harbaugh proclaimed Joe Flacco to be "the best quarterback in football."
Being a backup quarterback after starring in Houston hasn''t been easy for Schaub, although he''s ready to make the best of it.
The second-year head coach said Foster is still being evaluated, but he would miss time, although how much was unspecified.
If the results weren''t as encouraging, Still would have had to decide whether to try to sign on with a team on the East Coast so he could be closer to his daughter, or return to Cincinnati and see her less often.
NOTES: McCoy fell to 20-21 in three seasons. ... Fox, who was McCoy''s boss at Carolina and Denver, improved to 5-1 against McCoy.
Like the quarterback the Browns hope he can be.

Daily fantasy sports sites allow fans to win ?and lose ?money based on the results of games even in many places where sports gambling is usually illegal. Sports leagues that have traditionally had a zero tolerance policy toward gambling are more accepting of the sites because they fuel interest in the games. The leagues are also getting money from it depending on each deal''s structure.
ADDING PICKS: Whaley essentially ruled out the likelihood of making a trade to move up in the draft. He is interested in trading down and adding to Buffalo''s current collection of six picks.
MANKATO, Minn. (AP) ?When Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer went to visit his father in a Florida hospital earlier this week, his sister suggested that he start watching some practice video on his iPad, hoping to get a response from their ailing dad, a former football coach.
General manager Doug Whaley and team president Russ Brandon are also taking part in the interviews.
On Monday that meant shuffling the depth chart around.
"It''s awesome," he said. "Guys are awesome. Everybody''s working. It''s awesome. ... They''re all millionaires. If I took a penny and threw it across the floor and said ''whoever gets it is the champion,'' they''d fight each other tooth and nail to get that penny. That''s what they got."

The 34-year-old Johnson spent his first 12 seasons in Houston where he made seven Pro Bowls, two All-Pro teams, won two NFL receiving titles and averaged an NFL record 6.0 catches per game but never reached a conference championship game.
A Charlotte Fire Department spokesman did not immediately return messages Monday morning.
In 2012, Goodell suspended four players after a probe that determined former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams encouraged defensive leaders to run a cash-for-hits "bounty" pool that rewarded big and sometimes injurious hits. The players'' punishments were all vacated by former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, who had been tapped by the league to oversee union appeals in the matter.
Try three days.
Some of New England''s tricks weren''t even in the book, including a three-play series in which Belichick sent out only four offensive linemen. One of the ball-handlers was announced as an ineligible receiver as the Patriots broke the huddle for the snap, leaving Baltimore no time to substitute.
"People ask me how long do I want to play," Roethlisberger said. "If I look to the end I''m missing out on the right now. Right here, right now it''s a great time to be a Pittsburgh Steeler."

"We''re going to discuss everything tonight," Bowles said. "We need some roster spots. We have a couple people hurt. So, we have to work some things out."
Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas, the team''s top free agent acquisition, likely will miss the rest of the preseason with a broken right hand. The team initially reported Thomas injured his left hand, but corrected the mistake Saturday morning.
Taylor had a 31-yard touchdown run in the third quarter negated by a holding penalty against Kraig Urbik. In the final minute of the game, Charles Clay''s 32-yard touchdown catch was nullified when Richie Incognito and Cordy Glenn were flagged for a chop block.
Newton is pleased with his play so far this season, but said there are still areas to improve upon saying "The perfect game is still out there."
On the field, there will be plenty of sideshows.
The injury has the potential to limit McCoy, who is noted for being a speedy and shifty runner.
