In the recent shakeup at Yahoo!, management has been evaluated over and over again. In this particular lawsuit, Yahoo! is suing Facebook in patent infringements left and right, and that the 10 infringed patents include privacy measures to messaging, social networking in itself, the News Feed, user profiles, and its advertising methods. The real question here is if Yahoo! will win its case — in which none of us can give a very clear answer. However, Yahoo! seems very confident, stating that it is “compelled to seek redress in federal court,” and adding that it’s “confident” it will prevail. Hmph.
On the flipside of things, Facebook says that it is “disappointed that Yahoo’s effort to engage with us was limited to a few short phone calls and that we continue to learn of new developments about a long-time partner through the press,” adding that “we will defend ourselves vigorously against these puzzling actions.” The usual friendly jargon used to ensure nothing wrong is said, yet nothing too right is said, either.
