I posted earlier about a judge declaring a mistrial in the lawsuit between Yahoo and FindWhat in the lawsuit over paid listings. Yahoo has since sent word that the deadlock wasn't over the patent claims, something not mentioned in stories about the case to date. Yahoo's statement:
We are pleased to learn the jury has determined that FindWhat infringed on all of the patent claims that were before the jury and at issue in the trial. It is unfortunate that the jury did not reach conclusion on the remaining issues. We look forward to resolving all remaining issues in the post-trial briefing that has been scheduled by the court.
Expect a further update once we have some additional stories online, after reporters follow up more with all sides on the case.
