Google Files to Toss Out Patent Suit

by , Comments

This is an update/clarification about a law suit recently filed by Google that we posted about earlier today.

Here's the update:

The complaint filed by Google (November 18, 2004) and we posted about earlier today is in response to a patent suit filed by Skyline Software in May against Keyhole (now part of Google. After the was transferred to a California court, Google filed acomplaint asking for a declaration of noninfringement and patent invalidity. In other words, make the original complaint (Keyhole infringing on Skyline's patent) invalid.
