In August, Paul Allen brought suit against 11 e-commerce corporations for patent infringement. In a recent Am Law Litigation Daily article, Andrew Longstreth covers Google’s involvement in the suit. Google, Longstreth claims, has “the job of leading the charge against [Allen]” even though it doesn’t “…have the deepest pockets…” when compared to other large e-commerce companies involved, such as Apple. Claiming that Allen’s case has no basis to tie Google to the other defendants, Google has filed a motion to separate itself from the others involved in the suit. Todd Bishop also follows the case in this TechFlash article. In the motion, Google claims that Interval should not “waste Court and party resources with a scattershot Complaint against multiple Defendants….” The motion further states that “…it is impossible for Google to reasonably prepare a defense” because Interval’s Complaint does not contain sufficient factual information. Other defendants in the suit include Apple, Facebook and Yahoo!. It will be interesting to see if the other defendants follow Google’s lead in the coming months.
