Facebook Says Yahoo is Infringing on Its Patents


Facebook responded to Yahoo's recent suit against the company with a new one, alleging Yahoo is infringing on 10 of its patents.

Yahoo sued Facebook for infringing its patents last month.

"From the outset, we said we would defend ourselves vigorously against Yahoo's lawsuit, and today we filed our answer as well as counter-claims against Yahoo for infringing 10 of Facebook's patents," said Ted Ullyot, Facebook's general counsel in a statement. "While we are asserting patent claims of our own, we do so in response to Yahoo's short-sighted decision to attack one of its partners and prioritize litigation over innovation."

Facebook's claim filed in a San Francisco federal court Tuesday claims Yahoo services such as the photostream and a recent activity feature in Yahoo's Flickr photo-sharing service infringe on a Facebook patent, among others.

A Yahoo spokesman said: "We have only just received Facebook's answer and counterclaims, but on their face we believe they are without merit and nothing more than a cynical attempt to distract from the weakness of its defense. As we have made clear from the outset, the unauthorized use of our patented technology is unacceptable and must be resolved appropriately. Other leading companies license these technologies, and Facebook must do the same or change the way it operates. We have proposed that Facebook join us in discussions to resolve the matter, but our overtures have been rejected. As a result, we are prepared to continue to seek redress through the courts."
