Miva settles patent case with Yahoo for $8 million from the Associated Press covers how Miva -- the former FindWhat -- has settled a patent dispute with Yahoo over paid listings. The settlement amount of $8 million is tiny compared to the $328 million or so Google paid Yahoo to settle last year.

Yahoo will get an undisclosed percentage of all ad revenues Miva generates through using its pay-per-click system.
