Miva (aka FindWhat) & Yahoo Setting Paid Listing Patent Dispute

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. However, I thought even that higher amount was cheap for Google to get
clear of the dispute. As for Miva, the company will actually pay more than $8 million. Yahoo will get an undisclosed percentage of all ad revenues Miva generates through using
its pay-per-click system.
